I like to write complex SQL statements as HEREDOCs, as removing the Perl syntax from within the SQL syntax makes for much easier reading...

i.e. it is much easier to read your CREATE TABLE statement when written as....

my $sql = <<EOF; CREATE TABLE test_data$count( id PRIMARY KEY, group_id NOT NULL, created_at NOT NULL, text NOT NULL) AS SELECT rownum, MOD(rownum, 5), TO_DATE('1-jan-07', 'dd-mon-yy') + INTERVAL ' +1' MINUTE * rownum, CAST ('xyz' || rownum AS VARCHAR2(50)) FROM dual CONNECT BY LEVEL <= $rows EOF
This incorporates martos suggestions above, and I'll update if anyone spots any other issues.

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.
