    is it the right way to get the fastest fetch?
    I don't know, you have run it and give some statistics on the time taken, memory consumption of the perl program, etc.

    I am not a database expert, but IMHO using the database query's OFFSET AND LIMIT is the best way to fetch huge number of records, it is will take only minimum memory(depending on the offset and limit values), and effective values for limit will enable you to fetch all records in a optimum number of fetch cycles.

    -- 'I' am not the body, 'I' am the 'soul', which has no beginning or no end, no attachment or no aversion, nothing to attain or lose.

      Let me to oppose. OFFSET is not good for performance at all (BTW there's no OFFSET in Oracle AFAIK). When you executing query like

      SELECT name,phone ORDER BY name OFFSET 1000000 LIMIT 10
      your database should iterate over first 1000000 records before it will start returning records, this is very slow.
