kcott:

I've not tried it with MySQL, but I'm pretty sure (95%) that I used bind_param_inout a good few times with the Oracle and MSSQL drivers.

When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

    I said "It's been years"; on reflection, it's probably been over a decade. However, from subsequent replies, it looks like bind_param_inout was indeed the method I used.

    Like you, I've not used it with MySQL: I've never written a MySQL stored procedure nor had to write any DBI code to interface with one (although, I have used DBD::mysql many times over the years with plain SQL).

    I've definitely used it with Oracle; pretty sure I've also used it with one or both of Postgres and Informix; and, I think Sybase as well (although I'm less certain about that one).
