I know that someone is going to say, "go ask the perl module guys" and
I will but they are likely to say, "go ask the MySQL guys". I'll be
asking in both groups.
I am installing a script on a brand new RedHat, Fedora Core 7 (x86_64)
box that is running MySQL 5.0.45 (rpm install). I also have a mix
of other rpm MySQL installs on older Redhat boxes that are also a
mix of 32 and 64 bit machines.
The script works fine on the older installs. For example another 64
bit machine has a MySQL rpm rev of 5.0.27
I have a valid DB handle and after an insert I try to get the ID of
that inserted row, a la:
my $id = $DBH->last_insert_id();
This has been working everywhere until I tried installing the exact
same script on this newest machine. When the script runs now I get:
DBI last_insert_id: invalid number of arguments: got handle + 0, expected handle +
between 4 and 5
Usage: $h->last_insert_id($catalog, $schema, $table_name,
$field_name [, \%attr ]) at /usr/local/bin/myScript line 454.
Ok, I know the DBI Docs say that some versions of the drivers may
demand an argument list for last_insert_id() but since I have not seen
this behavior in the earlier versions is this new or is there a
