in thread difference between syb_nsql and prepare/execute call

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 ;-)
