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.

[abner]: what if i want SELECT * FROM charge WHERE col1 = x and col2 = y?
[atcroft]: abner: So you are wanting to do something like my $sth = $dbh->prepare(' SELECT * FROM charge WHERE col1 = ? and col2 = ?;'); $sth->execute(' asdf', 'asdw');?
[atcroft]: (Full disclosure: I may have the idea right but small typographical errors, so please test any code I suggest. :) )
