in reply to How do you open a PDF file from a perl script in Windows?

If the ".pdf" suffix is associated with Adobe, you can simply pass the file name to "system", and it will do the right thing. This works for me (Windows7):
perl -e "system q|myfile.pdf|"

             Most people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
        Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

[choroba]: if you turn off autocommit and run a prepared statement which fails, the transaction is automatically rolled back, at least in DBD::Pg
[erix]: at least, I'll know where to find the documentation :P
[choroba]: but if there's no prepared statement, there's no rollback
[choroba]: the rollback happens when deallocating the prepared statement in error state.
[choroba]: is this something that Pg enforces, or just a consequence of the Perl implementation?
[choroba]: also, does it make any sense? We run different statements generated from input structures, sometimes prepared statements are involved, sometimes not. We want the behaviour to be consistent.
[erix]: I'm not sure. I suppose you could compare behavior via DBD::Pg with behaviour of the naked SQL
