Yes it is. DBD::mysql behaves in the same way that DBD::Pg does when it comes to pulling all of the rows from the database server.

If you want DBD::mysql to act as if it were using cursors, you can specify mysql_use_rows on the statement handle, and then it will not pull over the whole data set on execute.

For DBD::Pg, you can declare a cursor and then execute the fetch in a loop until you have recieved all of the data. Admittedly this coould be done in a cleaner fashion where prepare could take an attribute and if prepare sees that attribute it will declare a cursor and rewrite your statement to use the cursor (which is what Pg::Simple does,IIRC)

    I had been under the impression that cursors don't work through DBD::Pg. I'm mistaken?

      $dbh->do(q{DECLARE imprecator CURSOR FOR SELECT * FROM tablename}) ; my $number = 10; my $fetch = $dbh->prepare(q{FETCH $number FROM imprecator}); ## ### Fetch first $number * 10 rows. ## while ($fetch->execute()) { Data::Dumper::Dumper($fetch->fetchall_arrayref()); last if $fetch->rows() < $number; }
      Note: The code above has not been tested; it is for illustrative purposes only.

    I think you meant "mysql_use_result", some grief and head banging over that typo, so hopefully that'll help some wanderer around here also trying to speed up $sth->execute
