in thread difference between syb_nsql and prepare/execute call

I already checked the documentation at cpan, but could not understand clearly. So, do you mean to say that syb_nsql is better?

    I don't know about you, but I read that as saying there are trade-offs.
      So, which one would you prefer? syb_nsql or prepare/execute?
        Generally, the programs I'm asked to write use a handful of known SQL statements called several times with varying bound parameters. In those situations, prepare/execute has definite speed advantages.

        If you're only going to use a statement once during the life of the program (or connection), those advantages fade away. In that case there can be advantage, or at least convenience, in an all-in-one statement.

        So without knowing your particular use case, I'm sorry to say I can't make your decision for you.

        I use DBD::Oracle for most of my work, so I prefer prepare/execute ;-)
