in reply to Programming the Perl DBI

/agree with reviews

Excellenet book:


Things I learned:
neat();/neat_list()
bind_parm_inout();
looks_like_number();
Advantages of ODBC over DBI
$dbi->tables();$dbi->table_info(); DBD::ODBC
dbish
dbirpoxy/DBI::Proxyserver
$dbh->{RaiseError}; $dbh->{PrinterError}; $dbh->{ChopBlocks}
Do w/ placeholders
NAME; NAME_uc; NAME_lc; consts for *hash functions
The list goes on...

The moral is the DBI Does lots of stuff, so much stuff that a whole book can be written on it, and keep an excellent ratio of content to verbosity.
