Re: Idea for DBIx module: Creating mass test databases based on existing ones

in reply to Idea for DBIx module: Creating mass test databases based on existing ones

  1. It would absolutely be useful to the testing community
  2. I haven't seen anything like this on CPAN, but I also have never done an extensive search for such a thing
  3. DBI::ODBC version plz

I could give my 2 cents on the state of the databases often used in test efforts, but that may be out of scope. This would be a useful tool, although it looks (at first glance) like it would be a lot of work to get it functional across a decent swath of DBIx flavors

    Thank you for the incentive and your comments. I know there is still a long way to go to make things work, especially across different DBMSs. But I find it worth the effort, it would be an improvement over having to create anonymized client databases or writing ad-hoc SQL to pump up tables.

[Cosmic37]: now I have tried another blunder - can anyone explain why I am such a dunderhead?
[Cosmic37]: if ( $line =~ /$mydt/ ) { print $line; }
[Cosmic37]: I try to match successive date times stored in variable $mydt
[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
[Cosmic37]: ah thank you I will try
