DBI is throwing an error because you are not passing anything to quote. The code you posted looks like it is passing something to quote; however, param('something') can retrun an empty list when called in list context. So what you basically end up doing is $dbi->quote(), and DBI throws an error to protect you from yourself.

So, to get it to do what you want, you can do a $dbi->quote(scalar(param('username'))), or maybe $dbi->quote(param(('username') or undef)).

Also you might want to try using placeholders instead of using quote() on each value. While placeholders will not get you around the 'param returning an empty list problem', placeholders end up being much cleaner. Something like this:
my $sth = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO member (nickname, password, first +_name, last_name, email, country, homepage, im_type, im_id, info) VAL +UES (?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)"); $sth->execute( map {scalar(param($_))} qw(username password1 firstname lastname email imtype imid info ) );

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.
