Subject:Re: [OT] When MySQL Bites: Quirks to Watch Out For
View as plain text  
It appears to be an article for perl programmers not familiar with
MySQL, warning them of MySQL quirks they should be aware of.  If you
write a perl script with DBD::MySQL and try one of the examples he
gave, and check your return status to see if the statement succeeded,
does it appear to have succeeded?  If so, unless you're very familiar
with MySQL specifically, you probably wouldn't think to look for
warnings, and parse them, just to make sure that the statement that
succeeded actually did what it was supposed to do.  Definitely a
potential pitfall that someone writing perl scripts for MySQL needs
to be aware of and know how to work around.
