in reply to variables inside SQL statements

Note - Interpolating variables into SQL is bad. Instead, use 'bind' variables, like so:
my $sql = 'INSERT INTO table ( path ) VALUES (:1)'; # Compile sql my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql) or die $dbh->errstr; # Bind path to :1 $sth->execute('/path/to/this') or die $dbh->errstr;

      You mean there are databases other than mySQL and Oracle? I don't understand. :)
