Iím going crosseyed at all the (select|fetch)(all|row|col)_(array|hash)(ref)? methods in my code ... I have been fighting with an increasingly uncomfortable feeling of programming by coincidence because I can never tell ... what data structure ... my code will return. Itís killing my productivity because Iíve lost my confidence ...
If you're willing to mingle SQL with your perl, and don't mind
source filters, perhaps SQL::Preproc would relieve your
crosseyed productivity issues ? In most instances, you just
write the SQL, inserting whatever Perl variable(s) you need to read
from/write to as placeholders. No more "picking the right API call".
