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 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!
