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

One way is to put it in your environment. If you're in a shell script, export (bourne-shell and derivitives) or setenv (C shell and derivitives) should help there. If it's a perl script calling another perl script, see the %ENV hash.

Another way, since this is DB2, is to discard the password and username altogether. Run it as a user who has the authority to do what you need, and no password is required. DB2 will use the OS authentication to confirm who you are. This is how I've generally done this - avoids all the hassles of dealing with passwords in plain-text perl code.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
