i think coolmichael explained is pretty well... but if you want to dump all your information into an array before starting to work and avoiding a while loop altogether, try this:

note: coolmichael, you forgot the semicolon at the end of your code ;)
$dsn = "DBI:mysql:yip;db.yip.com"; $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn,'me','pass'); $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT company FROM company_public;"); $sth->execute(); $companies = $sth->fetchall_arrayref; #a reference to an array of arra +ys of references to each row $dbh->disconnect; foreach $row (@$companies) { ($company) = @$row; print "$company\n"; #just printing it out for fun }
if your starting out new with mysql and perl... this tutorial should help you a lot: perlguy
