in reply to Difficulty inserting a large object using DBD::Pg

Ok, reading the PostgreSQL documentation on blobs helped :) From what I can tell, there is no way to write a blob directly; from a scalar; instead you have to use the lo_import and lo_export methods with disk-based files, the way you are doing it now. As much as MySQL gets picked on for not being a "real" RDBMS, it seems a lot better suited for what you want to do here than PostgreSQL.

    We're back where we started! Thanks for giving it a whirl, httptech.

    I'm not especially satisfied with pg's handling of large objects, but I want transactions for this, so MySQL isn't the way to go. I guess I'll just go with the pg-specific route and hope that DBD::Pg 1.0 will offer a way to fake normal lob handling.
