Thanks for the suggestion, I was able to replace it with this:

sub sql_escape { my $text = shift; $text = DBD::_::db->quote ($text); return $text; }

Outputs: O''REILLY

(This format works with MySQL)

    Why don't you use

    $dbh->quote(...)

    as the documentation suggests?

      I needed to convert a CSV file to SQL format (it would be later imported with phpMyAdmin). At the time of conversion there was no database to connect to, but a $dbh can be only created with a connection to a DB.

      Someone on StackOverflow suggested to use the above solution which works without a DB connection. ( http://stackoverflow.com/a/10458266 )
