Why would I want to use Class::DBI?

I use it for the times when the SQL that I'd be writing is so pointlessly simple and repetitive that it's a better use of my time to get the computer to write it for me. There are enough hooks in Class::DBI for me to write the SQL that I need to write for efficiency reasons so what I gain on the swings I also gain on the roundabouts.

Do I use it all of the time? Hell no. Sometimes the way I'll be using my data is so far away from the Class::DBI view of the world that I'd spend more time getting around it than using it. For simple CRUD applications however it's a boon.

IMHO of course :-)

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
