And thanks for the advise on tracing. That helped me pinpoint the error exactly!

If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

    What WAS the error?

    Hanlon's Razor - "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity"

      As I mentioned, I had cut and pasted the code. The code which contained the actual error had been abbreviated in my original post and therefore wasn't shown. Here it is:

      if ($numParams == 1) { my $DBquery= $sth->execute($SearchPhrase); } elsif ($numParams == 2) { my $DBquery= $sth->execute($SearchPhrase, $SearchSystem); } elsif ($numParams == 3) { my $DBquery= $sth->execute($SearchPhrase, $begDate, $endDate); } elsif ($numParams == 3) { my $DBquery= $sth->execute($SearchPhrase, $SearchSystem, $begDate, + $endDate); }
      If $numParams is 4, the execute statement will never be reached. By watching the trace, I was able to see that it wasn't happening, which pointed me to the last elsif.

      I hate cutting and pasting code, because this always happens to me. However, I'm also aware that no one wants to dig through 500 lines of code when 25 would suffice.

      My bad. Thanks again all!

        Then my answer below may have prevented the problem above.

Tanktalus is trying to figure out how to get a case-insensitive match between stra▀e and strasse to return true in perl :( fc doesn't seem to do it, either, unless I'm doing it wrong.
[LanX]: ▀,ss
[LanX]: nope
[LanX]: /.*(?:▀|ss).*/
[hippo]: How are you doing the match? Regex, index, eq or something else?
[choroba]: fc $s1 eq fc $s2 I guess
[Tanktalus]: hippo: I don't care, I just want to prove it can match correctly compared to, say, ILIKE / UPPER / LOWER in postgres :)
[LanX]: is there a unicode convention that ▀ is ss ?
[Tanktalus]: LanX: yes :) I haven't tried java, but I have this match working in its bastard cousin, C# :) I just thought perl's unicode support would get me there :)
[LanX]: I have my doubts, IMHO its a workaround if the glyph is missing
