in reply to Handling BLOB data in ORACLE using perl script

Long time since I tried answering a PM question, so apologies for the likely off-baseness of it. But I was drawn to it because I sense I'll be needing to do the same thing.

Have you tried dereferencing the returned value?

I've always been terrible at this, but the snippet from http://perlmeme.org/howtos/using_perl/dereferencing.html helped me in the past:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $array_ref = ['apple', 'banana', 'orange']; my @array = @$array_ref; print "Reference: $array_ref\n"; print "Dereferenced: @array\n";

Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you! I mean, if I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
