The short (indeed the long) answer is that you can't share a single database connection between processes. You'll need to open a new $dbh in each fork.


Update: 14/12/02

I lied. Oops.

It turns out that some DBDs do support access to the same $dbh in different processes - so in specific cases you can do this. You just have to be careful to make sure that you do not close the handle in one process if you want to continue using it in another.

However, if you want to write code that is portable across databases then you should consider avoiding this, because not all DBDs support it.

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.
