in thread DBI Style Inquiry

I am surprised by the difference (even if it's small) between fetch and fetchrow_arrayref (your BC and DBC), as DBI docs say:

"fetchrow_arrayref" $ary_ref = $sth->fetchrow_arrayref; $ary_ref = $sth->fetch; # alias

Or is the essential difference something else?

(Also, it would be interesting to have the DBMS version-numbers on those pages; it does say 2006, that's a long time ago. I would say that (arguably, no doubt) PostgreSQL has advanced more than the others in performance in this particular period)

    The difference between BC and DBC is the method-call overhead. If you really want to squeze out nonoseconds per call, it matters. It is not something I would propagate in use though:

    Create table 5000 x 12 Dbindcol 660153.156 recs/sec 4.8 x faster DBC bindcol 633472.697 recs/sec 4.6 x faster BC Darrayref 563380.282 recs/sec 4.1 x faster DAR arrayref 525486.075 recs/sec 3.8 x faster AR array 227086.929 recs/sec 1.7 x faster A hashref 136836.344 recs/sec HR

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
