in thread Concrete SQL from SQL::Abstract?

Dang. In addition to not noticing the slightly odd insert into X set field=value, field2=value2 syntax (as opposed to the 'insert' method's more standard insert into (fields) values (values)), I didn't realize there's weirdness with question marks:

my %data = ( url => "http://foo/bar?baz", asdf => 1, thing => \'now()' + ); $_ = (ref) ? $_ : $dbh->quote($_) for values %data; print scalar $sqlgen->generate('insert into',\'atable',\%data); __END__ Use of uninitialized value in substitution iterator at /usr/lib/perl5/ +vendor_perl/5.10.0/SQL/ line 1290. INSERT INTO atable SET asdf = '1', thing = now(), url = 'http://foo/ba +rbaz'

Seems this simply isn't the general use-case for 'generate'.
