quotemeta is close but not a perfect fit. It will escape (with a backslash) any non-alphanumeric which includes ALL punctuation and even spaces.

In most dialects of SQL, quotes are escaped by doubling them:

he said, "I'LL be back"
Would need to become:
'he said, "I''LL be back"'
Using the example given by the questioner. There's no need to escape other punctuation or spaces. And I said most, because the quoting given by DBI::quote() will match that required by the database transparently.

Update OK, alfie so you updated your reply while I was writing that. And ++ for the bit about asking for an e-mail.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
