    A DBI statement handle is an object that represents a database query, usually an SQL statement. You obtain a statement handle from one of its constructors, prepare or prepare_cached. Those constructors are methods of a connection handle, since the statement handle must depend on a particular db connection.

    A statement handle's execute method causes the statement to be run by the server, and there are a variety of fetch methods to obtain the results of the query.

    What is it in the documentation and examples provided by the respective modules is it that you don't understand?

    Do you have a more specific question?

    s**lil*; $*=join'',sort split q**; s;.*;grr; &&s+(.(.)).+$2$1+; $; = qq-$_-;s,.*,ahc,;$,.=chop for split q,,,reverse;print for($,,$;,$*,$/)
      use DBmanager qw ($dbh $table); sub tableinfo { my ($dbh, $table) = @_; $table = "download"; my $sth = $dbh->prepare("QUERY"); my $tables = $sth->{'NUM_OF_FIELDS'}; print Dumper($tables); } &tableinfo ($dbh, $table);
      output : $VAR1 = undef;
      may be im doing somewhere wrong, i hoping for an sample code.

        What's "DBmanager"?

        I'm used to seeing database code like this (for mysql):

        use DBI; my $dbh = DBI->connect( "DBI:mysql:database=test;host=localhost", "username", "password" ); my $sth = $dbh->prepare( 'select * from table_foo' ); $sth->execute(); my $numrecords = $sth->rows; my $numfields = $sth->{'NUM_OF_FIELDS'}; $sth->finish; print "I found $numrecords records, each having $numfields fields.\n";

        Please note, I took this example code directly from the documentation. It makes sense to me - is there something you have a question about that the documentation doesn't answer?

        s**lil*; $*=join'',sort split q**; s;.*;grr; &&s+(.(.)).+$2$1+; $; = qq-$_-;s,.*,ahc,;$,.=chop for split q,,,reverse;print for($,,$;,$*,$/)
