in reply to LIMIT clause in Class::DBI

I've found Class::DBI::Extension on CPAN that should have what you're looking for. By the way, beware the Description:
THIS RELEASE IS FOR TEMPORARY DEVELOPMENT. Hope this will eventually be merged into Class::DBI and/or Class::DBI::mysql.
FWIW, I think it should be included in Class::DBI::mysql, or in Class::DBI provided some general implementation of the LIMIT idiom.

    Regrettably, the code notes that it the SQL it implements is specific to MySQL. In Oracle, for example, you use a "where rownum < ?" to limit results. Thus the code is not terribly portable (yet). It would be nice to see that added.

[Lady_Aleena]: This evening, I thought to myself, "I would love to search Netflix for 100 randomfilms from my database to see if they have them." So I went to CPAN to see if there were a modiule which could do such a thing. There is, but GUH! ...
[Lady_Aleena]: ... Does it have to be that hard and complex to use to do a search on Netflix?
Lady_Aleena grumbles.
