Funny article!

Funny too, that when I get stuck on something at times I can just randomly browse PerlMonks....not even a directed search and find my answer. Indeed mystical.

I've been looking for a way to quote safe a large array of strings for entry into a database (can't have the ' without screwing up syntax)

but the DBI ->quote( @array ), it doesn't like,

so I've been trying to get all of @array into a single string because THAT I can quote.

but NOW

I understand why my $allofarray = @array returns a number of elements in the array, but my ( $allofarray ) = @array returns the first string in the array....now to just figure out how to get all of the elements into one long string...
