Oh, sorry. Maybe I misunderstood. Does the code actually work, and you want to know why it works?

$oldrow is the previous row. The function that builds the iterator stores the first row before it creates the iterator function:

sub dbi_query_iterator { my ($sth, @params) = @_; $sth->execute(@params) or return; # get the first row of results NOW my $row = $sth->fetchrow_arrayref(); return Iterator { my $action = shift() || 'nextval'; if ($action eq 'exhausted?') { return ! defined $row; } elsif ($action eq 'nextval') { # save the current row of results my $oldrow = $row; # get the next row of results $row = $sth->fetchrow_arrayref; # return the previous row (before we advanced) return $oldrow->[0]; } } }

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.
