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

I'm actually reading Programming the Perl DBI Because I want to fill in the gaps in my DB knowledge. For example, I hadn't researched the TRACE capabilities of DBI. Much of the code I use, and some I have written, is littered with manual tracing that can be simplified by using built-in facilities.

On the other hand, P.t.P.D. has many outdated idiom, such as C-style loops. There are newer and cleaner ways to write code.

I would suggest:

  1. Read Programming the Perl DBI to get a thorough understanding of DBI.
  2. Read the modern DBI man page, to determine what has changed.
  3. Read Modern Perl and Effective Perl Programming to get modern idiom and new trends in good Perl style.

As Occam said: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.

Title:
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.
