You can, however, do something along the lines of:

my $sql = '... WHERE foo IN (' . join(',', ('?') x scalar( @values ) +) . ') ...';

in order to generate the proper placeholder-based statement that you can then pass your parameters into.

See also DBIx::PreQL.

Update: As per BrowserUK (below), in order to make use of this, you either need to prepare your query each time, cache your prepared query based on number of parameters using prepare_cached or some other method, or know that the number of parameters will be the same each and every time.

    Only if you will have the same number of parameters for each binding; and know that number a priori when you prepare the statement.

      Yes, absolutely. I made the assumption (probably poor) that this was not for performance, but to use placeholders in the SQL. Update to my response is in order done.
