my($id, $name, $phone); $sth->bind_columns(undef, \$id, \$name, \$phone);
A shorter way is:
$sth->bind_columns(\my ($id, $name, $phone));
And regarding this statement:

And, for the same reasons, you should use prepare_cached instead of prepare.

Choosing prepare or prepare_cached really depends. The caching is a slight overhead, so if I can reasonably arrange my SQL so that something is only prepared once (or if its used just once anyway), then I'll just use 'prepare'. Or if you're dynamically creating a SQL statement (lets say a million times) and the number of possible unique combinations is large, then you don't want to use prepare_cached, e.g. you have a couple of 'IN' clauses, and each one might have 1-100 elements, so you end up with something like:

select stuff from table where field1 in (?,?,?,?) and field2 in (?,?,?,?,?)
(Note: placeholders are still a good idea in this case)

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.
