I'm not a perl expert but had exactly the same error the very
first time I played with DBI.
My problem was caused by opening the connection in a function
and using a local variable to hold the connection handle.
Although the function returned the handle [or so I thought] to
the calling function the perl garbage collector was destroying
the handle as soon as the variable name went out of scope [at
My solution was to return a reference to the database handle
instead which solved my problem.
Hope this helps...
