in thread Handle MySQL BIT data type in Perl

SQL_BIT is defined, when I ran:

use DBI qw(:sql_types); use Data::Dumper; #use strict; use warnings; foreach (sort @{$DBI::EXPORT_TAGS{sql_types}}) { printf "%s=%d\n", $_, &{"DBI::$_"}; }

One of the output line says:


So there was some hope... However the following code compiled okay, but still gave the same error (data too long):

use DBI qw(:sql_types); use Data::Dumper; use strict; use warnings; my $dsn = "DBI:mysql:database=test;host=foo"; my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, 'root', 'root', {RaiseError => 1}); my $insert = "insert into test(a) value(?)"; my $select = "select * from test"; my $insert_st = $dbh->prepare($insert); my $select_st = $dbh->prepare($select); $insert_st->bind_param(1, 3, SQL_BIT); $insert_st->execute() or die $dbh->errstr; $select_st->execute(); my $ref = $select_st->fetchall_arrayref(); print Dumper($ref);

This further proves to me that, just like Zaxo and I diiscussed in private, this is a bug, integer was not trimed to fit.

By the way, I tested Zaxo's chr(3) bit, and that worked.

Or we can put it in virtualsue's way, the DBD has not yet updated for MySQL 5. By the way, MySQL only started to support BIT data type in version 5.

    MySQL v4.1 and below had stub-like support for BIT, which is why the current version of DBD::mysql sorta supports it. From the MySQL 4.1 Reference Manual:

    In versions of MySQL up to and including 4.1, BIT is a synonym for TINYINT(1).

    Whereas in version 5:

    This data type was added in MySQL 5.0.3 for MyISAM, and extended in 5.0.5 to MEMORY, InnoDB, and BDB. Before 5.0.3, BIT is a synonym for TINYINT(1)

[Corion]: 1nickt: I bought a 2015 XPS 13, which is a very nice and shiney (and somewhat overpriced) machine, but I think it's still better priced than an Apple machine. Now it just has to hold up 10 years like the old one did ;)
[1nickt]: Ah, you got Linus' fave? With Ubuntu? 4k display?
[1nickt]: ( The 17" monster I just bought is for my wife, who doesn;t leave the house with it...)
[Corion]: 1nickt: No, I'm using it with Windows 10, but with the 4k display, yes. It's a very nice build IMO, and relatively sturdy. Also, it got 8 or 9 on the ifixit repair scale, which I consider good
[Corion]: ... especially as I expect to have to replace the battery set in two or three years' time
