in reply to Removing spaces from query results

I would use LTRIM(RTRIM(...)) on the SQL side.

    I did but it doesn't work <code>..RTRIM(LTRIM(name)) as name..." I have to do it in the Perl.
      Strange. Works for me:
      #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use DBI; my $db = DBI->connect('dbi:SQLite:dbname=1.db', q(), q()); $db->do('CREATE TABLE T (name varchar)'); my $insert = $db->prepare('INSERT INTO T VALUES(?)'); for my $name (qw(Matthew Mark Luke John)) { $insert->execute((' ' x rand 10) . $name . (' ' x rand 10)); } my $select = $db->prepare('SELECT LTRIM(RTRIM(name)) AS name FROM T'); $select->execute; while (my $name = $select->fetchrow_arrayref) { print "|$name->[0]|\n"; }

      Output:

      |Matthew| |Mark| |Luke| |John|
