( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello - I'm new to Perl. Trying to set up a loop to call a series of lines to submit to SQL I've already assigned $line1, $line2, $line3 etc with sql queries to run on the database. The problem is perl doesn't seem to like $linename.$counter
my $line1 = "use pricedb;"; my $linename = "line"; my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:host=localhost;database=mysql","root +","root"); # set up a loop to make submitting lines easier ; for(my $counter = 1; $counter <=10; $counter ++) { my $concatline = $linename.$counter; my $rowsaffected = $dbh ->do(${$concatline}); if ($rowsaffected && $rowsaffected == 0E0) { print "Operations ws successful but no rows were affecte +d \n"; } elsif($rowsaffected) { print "Operation was successful ($rowsaffected rows)\n"; } else { print "Operation failed: $DBI::errstr\n"; } } $dbh -> disconnect;
Please advise how I get the loop to pull $line1, $line2 etc? NB I'm very new to Perl so would appreciate v simple suggestions - my previous experience is SAS, Matlab and a little VBA..Thanks!!
