( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This is just an idea - completely untested as I don't currently have Oracle installed.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; #my $date = "2002-08-23 11:39:24"; #my $date = "Fri Aug 23 12:14:04 2002"; my $date = "Fri Aug 2 12:14:04 2002"; my $format; if ($date =~ /\d\d\d\d-\d\d-\d\d \d\d:\d\d:\d\d/) { print "yes\n"; $format = "YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS"; } elsif ($date =~ /\w\w\w \w\w\w \d{1,2} \d\d:\d\d:\d\d \d\d\d\d/) { print "2nd one\n"; $format = "DY MON DD HH24:MI:SS YYYY"; } my $sql = qq{ INSERT INTO mytable (DATE_COL) VALUES (TO_DATE('?', '?') }; $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql) || die $dbh::errstr; $sth->execute($date, $format) || die $dbh::errstr; ### blah blah ###
Just an idea - hope it helps.
