perl -MDBI -le 'my $h = DBI->connect; use Data::Dumper; my $r = $h->se +lectall_arrayref("select * from mje");print Dumper($r);' $VAR1 = [ [ 1, 'fred' ], [ 2, '' ], [ 3, undef ] ];

So empty strings in this case are defined and NULLs in the databases are returned as undef in Perl. undef is a Perl thing and NULL is a SQL thing so when you say "How can I separate the undef data and NULL data" it does not make sense.
