in reply to What use DBI?

Some random thoughts:

  • Security: passing passwords on the command line is insecure, because other users can see them with ps and related tools
  • Security: getting the escaping right is non-trivial
  • Correctness: getting the parsing of the results right is non-trivial. As far as I can tell there's no reliable way to parse the output from the mysql command line tool, because it doesn't escape "special" characters
  • Performance: spawning a new process for each query is costly
  • Correctness: You don't check for errors at all.
