in reply to Switching from ODBC to DBI

Not to disagree with previous comments (far from it), but...

At the end of your code snippet, it looks like you're constructing a DBI DSN which uses ODBC. The names of some variables at the top indicate that you're trying to talk to a DB2 database. I.E. it looks to me as though you may already be using DBI, talking to a DB2 database through the DBD::ODBC driver. Assuming that I've guessed correctly, your job may be as simple as constructing the correct DSN using DBD::DB2. Look at the docs for DBD::DB2

If you don't have DBD::DB2, building it requires access to the appropriate DB2 client libraries, which may be an issue.

[Corion]: Do you have any specific interests or general Perl knowledge?
[Cosmic37]: should I slurp? should I grep? Noble Lords I wish you good karma and beg your advice
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Ah, see perlfaq4, about How do I compute the intersection of two arrays
[Cosmic37]: I am out of practice; I use Perl for scientific programming for number crunching
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Basically, you read one file into a hash, keyed by your key, and then match the lines from the second file to that hash
[Cosmic37]: note that the two files only have datetimes which may match whereas other data per line is different format in file1 and file2 - is that really intersection?
[jedikaiti]: Hi Monks
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Well, if you want to use only parts of a line for the key, see split or whatever other mechanism to extract the key from the line
[Corion]: Hi jedikaiti!
