in reply to Thanks, Monks!

I wish we might have a constant stream of newcomers who apply a conscientious and confident approach to learning as you have demonstrated. Perl needs people who are ready to roll up their sleeves and dive in with passion.

    I'm one of those newcomers :-) I've actually come back to programming after a long time & guess which language I chose to write my first app in ? Right, it's Perl. It's fun & so quick to code in Perl.

[Corion]: Hmmm. I feel a Meditation coming on. I wrote a module, DBIx::PivotQuery, which returns a table-like set of rows (AoA) but some columns are generated from column values, like in an (Excel) pivot table or a ROLLUP command
[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
