in reply to DBI: interpreting column_info()

In my experience, it's more useful to select column info to a hash:
use Data::Dumper qw(Dumper); my $col_names = $sth_column_info->{NAME_uc}; my %row; $sth->bind_columns(\@row{@$col_names}); while ($sth_column_info->fetch) { print Dumper \%row; }
I usually don't care about the DATA_TYPE (the code), the TYPE_NAME (database specific data type name) has been more useful.

[LanX]: already?
[erix]: I don't know really. I thought so.
[LanX]: April 16th
[erix]: ah no, 16 april. some time to go yet :)
[LanX]: I hate resurrection ... my back aches
erix practices self-crucifixion but keeps getting get stuck at the one loose hand stage...
