( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think you want something more like this:

my @returned_data; while (my $row = $data_handle->fetchrow_hashref()) { push (@returned_data, { 'name' => $row->{NAME}, 'city' => $row->{CITY}, 'state' => $row->{STATE}, }); } $data_handle->finish; print $q->header(-type => "application/json", -charset => "utf-8"); my $json = encode_json \@returned_data; print $json;

Things to note: @returned_data is an array of hashrefs. Each time through the while loop, you grab a row from the database, and push a new hashref into the array (each hashref is like a single record of data). This isn't necessarily the best way to do it - it makes more sense to do it this way when you need to use different key names, or modify the data in some way. If all you want is to dump the database values to the web page "as is", consider the suggestions given here by other monks.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
