You could put them in a hash. For example, pass the names to the routine (e.g. proc( [qw(foo bar)] )), and then say in the routine

my $names = shift; ... @v{@$names} = $sth->fetchrow()

(The @v{...} is a hash slice, which means you can assign multiple entries in one go.)

You can then access the "variables" as $v{foo} and $v{bar}.

    You can also directly ask DBI to return you a hash:

    my $hash = $sth->fetchrow_hashref();

      Sure you can (presuming the query produces the desired column names).

      I was mainly trying to answer the general case, i.e. the typical "beginner's" problem of wanting to dynamically create variables like

      $xxx = "$DBNAME,$USERNAME,$PROFILE"; my ( '$xxx' ) = ( ... );
