( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Well done. Some corrections if I may.
(a) bind_columns SHOULD be after execute has been called. As DBI's manual says, that's for maximum compatibility.
(b) You call bind_columns with four parameters (the first one been undef) while your execute only returns three (id, name and phone). While I have never used bind_columns before execute, I beleive that should fail.

My way is similar but not the same (I include just the different part):

my $sth = $dbh->prepare_cached(<<SQL); select id, name, phone from people where birth_month = ? SQL for my $month (@months) { print "People born in $month:\n"; my($id, $name, $phone); # Execute the statement for this $month $sth->execute($month); $sth->bind_columns(\$id, \$name, \$phone); # Also valid: $sth->bind_columns(\($id, $name, $phone)); # Fetch each row and print out the values while ($sth->fetch) { print "\t", join("\t", $id, $name, $phone), "\n"; } }

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.
