Negative there. IE has a problem with large and/or numerous drop down lists. If you want an example, get moderation on slashdot sometime and go look at a page with a lot of posts. Or write one. Make a page with about 150 drop down lists of moderate size and look at it in IE.

Don't dismiss so easily, really. It's a very valid question, while possibly not perl related, it's a software design question and that's what perl's for.. and I'm sure other people will run into this same problem eventually. Browser bugs and inconsistancies are a huge problem in web development.

local $_ = "0A72656B636148206C72655020726568746F6E41207473754A"; while(s/..$//) { print chr(hex($&)) }

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
