in reply to sql and hash confusion

There seems to be some inconsistency on the sample data that lead me to think that this simple split on commas won't give you a correct hash representation of the information. You will need to study the file to better understand its structure and then find a proper way to parse it.

I'm not familiar with Win32::ODBC so I can't tell you if you are using it correctly but, I'd recommend that you look into the DBI documentation in order to learn how to connect to a database and execute queries on it. Take particular notice on placeholders.

Your SQL statement is wrong. Find an SQL cheat sheet (just to get you started) and look for the correct syntax for insert statements. Just search for sql syntax.

[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. perl.org/ functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
