Wow, thanks for all the replies :o)

I am using the sub get_page_content to get variables in a database.

I took the advice of another monk and added a type to the table, so I am passing the "type" only, and it is getting all those variables and putting them in the hash. So It looks like this:

sub get_page_content { my $type = shift; my $dbh = DB_File::connect(); $sth = $dbh->prepare (qq{ SELECT `name`,`value` FROM `page_variabl +es` WHERE `type` = ? }); $sth->execute($type); my %temp_vars; # WILL THIS KILL THE REST OF THE VALUES? while(my ($db_name,$db_content) = $sth->fetchrow_array()) { $temp_vars{$db_name} = $db_content; } $sth->finish(); return(%temp_vars); }
Since I call this with %variables = get_page_content("name"); that would replace the whole hash, right? OR would it just append the new variables to this list? They will always be unique, as the column `name` has to be unique, or it will error out, when adding new records to the db.

thx,
Richard


BTW, I do have quite a few Perl books, but I have only read two of them("Perl Cookbook" and "Perl and Mysql for the Web"). I'm by no means a Perl guru. ;o)
When I have more time on my hands I'll devour the Others! :o)

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
