( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

This approach works really well, but I've been caught out by the way it handles unknown or undefined times.

MySQL stores unrecognised date/times as 0000-00-00 00:00:00, as described in the MySQL manual. In the case of TIMESTAMP fields, unknown values are also stored in this form, as opposed to using NULL.

I've worked around this problem by storing timestamps that may not exist in external tables and referencing them using Class::DBI's might_have relationship.

I've raised a bug report for this in RT. Although it's a documented feature of MySQL, I appreciate the argument that DateTime::Format::MySQL shouldn't have to work around it.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
