in thread Perl 6 will primarily be:

Where is this "current thinking" espoused? It seems like a serious mistake. How will we use user-supplied patterns in that case?

    It's not out yet, but it'll be in A5 if Larry decides to go that way. There'll be a switch or set of metacharacters to enable treating interpolated scalars as part of the regex. if he does. The ability's not getting taken away, just the default treatment may be switched. (Which is what people need and expect more often than not anyway)

[abner]: yes. i am familiar with mysql but ignorant about how to get around the fact that placeholders can only represent single scalar values.
[abner]: my $sth = $dbh->prepare(' SELECT * FROM charge WHERE cpt = ?') or die "Couldn't prepare statement: " . $dbh->errstr;
[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. :) )
