( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
the more challenging (but maybe easier, too??) of writing my own "Postgres" module that actually acts as a *wrapper* to the current DBI module

I don't think this is a good idea. To access a Postgres database using DBI, you'd need the DBD::Pg module. This converts standardised DBI calls to the Postgres API. I assume that the existing Postgres module looks a lot like the Postegres API (that's how most of these older database access modules work). Your suggested module would therefore convert Postgres API calls to DBI calls, only to have DBD::Pg turn them straight back again. That pretty much seems to defeat the object of using DBI to me.

    [Discipulus]: ;=)
    [Discipulus]: you are rigth: 2018 had less bad days than 2017, until now!
    [Discipulus]: if i had to go to psycho i need to ask why i always end with over complex datastructure: now i have an HoHoAoH in my object
    [Discipulus]: i will need to handle by reference later on
    [Eily]: kinda sounds like father Christmas is late
    [hippo]: (asking because I'm sure you said before about learning English) Did you know there are 2 different words for smaller quantities in English? They are "less" and "fewer". Fewer applies to a number of discrete things like days.
    Eily notes also
    [hippo]: So if you don't drink as much milk and not as often you are said to drink less milk on fewer days. Confusing, eh?
