Funny article!

Funny too, that when I get stuck on something at times I can just randomly browse PerlMonks....not even a directed search and find my answer. Indeed mystical.

I've been looking for a way to quote safe a large array of strings for entry into a database (can't have the ' without screwing up syntax)

but the DBI ->quote( @array ), it doesn't like,

so I've been trying to get all of @array into a single string because THAT I can quote.

but NOW

I understand why my $allofarray = @array returns a number of elements in the array, but my ( $allofarray ) = @array returns the first string in the to just figure out how to get all of the elements into one long string...

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
