in reply to DBI specification change

Hmm... Can't say that I like the newly documented behavior, but its always been a bit murky anyway. See this discussion where three of us so-called-saints all got it wrong. Perhaps in a future release, fetchrow_array should throw a warning when called in scalar context.

    I agree that fetchrow_array in scalar context should throw a warning. Somthing like:
    $scalar = $sth->fetchrow_array better written as ($scalar) = $sth->fet +chrow_array
