in thread Disappearing results with DBI and bind_columns

- I know this isn't related to your width/height issue, but is fetchrow() a valid DBI routine? I know that fetch() is an alias for fetchrow_arrayref(), but I've never seen plain old fetchrow() before.

Holy moly, you're right.

I merely switched fetchrow to fetch and it worked. I find this highly odd, to tell you the truth. I've used DBI for a few years now, and started using bind_columns about 6 months ago, after a Perl Mongers meeting. Since then, I've always used fetchrow. I'm surprised it hasn't once given me an error message or even a warning.

Thank you.

    I'm not sure how you could have ever gotten bind columns to work with fetchrow. My understanding is that the fetchrow method is an old alias for fetchrow_array. I thought only plain old fetch returned values in bound columns since the others return their values in some sort of data structure -- an array in this case.
