in reply to DBI search for forward slash

Simple DBI search

You say "search" but are using WHERE for exact matches. Are you sure you don't mean LIKE?

Otherwise, you'll have to provide an SSCCE that reproduces this behavior, because I don't really see anything wrong with the code snippet you've shown, and you haven't shown any sample data.

    Yes, I would like to perform exact search. I need to find field with exact string match. Anyway - LIKE is fail as well

      Sorry, but that is not an adequate problem description. Please see How do I post a question effectively? and I know what I mean. Why don't you?, and provide a Short, Self-Contained, Correct Example, like the following. Note how it is exactly the code you posted, except that it works fine for me.

      use warnings; use strict; use feature 'say'; use DBI; my $dbh = DBI->connect( "DBI:mysql:database=testing;host=", $ENV{USER}, 'barfoo', { RaiseError => 1, AutoCommit => 1 }); $dbh->do('DROP TABLE IF EXISTS texts'); $dbh->do(<<'ENDSQL'); CREATE TABLE texts ( string VARCHAR(256) ); ENDSQL $dbh->do('INSERT INTO texts (string) VALUES ("/a/b/c");'); # --- my $string = '/a/b/c'; my $req = qq{ SELECT * FROM `texts` WHERE `string`=?}; my $sth = $dbh->prepare($req); my $row = $sth->execute($string); say "row = $row"; # --- my $sth2 = $dbh->prepare( q{ SELECT * FROM texts WHERE string LIKE '%/a/b/c%' }); $sth2->execute; say "row = $row";

      This prints row = 1 twice, as expected.

      This is how I spun up a fresh test MySQL instance. To change the server's port number, change the -p3306:3306 to something like -p13306:3306 in the docker command, add the argument --port=13306 to the mysql command, and add the argument ;port=13306 to the DBI connection string in the Perl code.

      $ docker run --rm --name testmysql -p3306:3306 -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=foobar -d mysql:5
      # wait a few seconds for it to start
      $ echo "CREATE USER '$USER' IDENTIFIED BY 'barfoo'; CREATE DATABASE testing; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON testing.* TO '$USER';" | mysql --protocol=TCP --user=root --password=foobar
      # after testing:
      $ docker stop testmysql

      Several smaller edits to add more information.

        Sorry for delay. THis is my code
        $dbh->do("CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `test` ( `string` VARCHAR(256))" +); my $string = '/a/b/c/d'; my $I = qq{ INSERT INTO `test` (`string`) VALUES (?) }; my $sI = $dbh->prepare($I); $sI->execute($string); my $R1 = qq{ SELECT * FROM `test`}; my $sR1 = $dbh->prepare($R1); my $row1 = $sR1->execute(); say "total1: $row1"; while( my $L1 = $sR1->fetchrow_hashref ) { say "$L1->{'string'}"; } my $R2 = qq{ SELECT * FROM `test` WHERE `string`=?}; my $sR2 = $dbh->prepare($R2); my $row2 = $sR2->execute(); say "total2: $row2"; while( my $L2 = $sR2->fetchrow_hashref ) { say "$L2->{'string'}"; }
        total1: 1 /a/b/c/d total2: 0E0
