It sounds as if you want to bind the variable $color1 to the value of a the corresponding column in the current row. Check out the bind_col and bind_columns methods of DBI.

Update: As CPAN appears to be down, here is the basic syntax (grabbed from perldoc DBI);

$rc = $sth->bind_col($column_number, \$var_to_bind); and $rc = $sth->bind_columns(@list_of_refs_to_vars_to_bind);
The variables pretty much explain themselves ;-), but if you don't get it, do a perldoc DBI (or equivalent) and find the complete doc.

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.
