Retrieving data from a database

Hi,

So far I use the code described below to retrieve the data from a database :
   $base->get_result(\%result);
   
   foreach $row (@{$result{data}}) {
      $ligne = "$row->[0],$row->[1],$row->[2],$row->[3],$row->[4],";
      $ligne .= "$row->[5],$row->[6],$row->[7],$row->[8],$row->[9],";
      $ligne .= "$row->[10],$row->[11],$row->[12],$row->[13],$row->[14],";
      $ligne .= "$row->[15],$row->[16],$row->[17],$row->[18],$row->[19],";
      $ligne .= "$row->[20]";
   ...

But now I want to be more flexible and I want to make a loop such as :
   foreach $token ($row) {
    ...

Therefore I don't have to manage explicitly the number of columns of the query.

Thanks in advance

Hi,
   try following code:
-----------------------------------------------------------
use DBI;
use DBI qw(:sql_types);

sub DBOp {
     my ($dbConn, $query) = (@_);
     $rst = $dbConn->prepare("$query") || &DBErrorRewind($ERRORCODE{"ErrorSQLPrepare"},"getWarning\@parseWarnings.pl",$dbh->errstr(), "$query", $fileName, $Error);    
     $rst->execute() || &DBErrorRewind($ERRORCODE{"ErrorSQLExec"},"getWarning\@parseWarnings.pl",$rst->errstr(), $query, $fileName, $Error);
     return $rst;
}

$query = "select * from db_table";
$rst1 = DBOp($dbConn, $query);

while (@data = $rst1->fetchrow_array()) {
   $val1 = $data[0];
   $val2 = $data[1];
   $val3 = $data[2];
   
   print "val1: $val1 \t val2: $val2 \t val3: $val3\n";
}

----------------------------------------------------------
Hope this help =)

 $base->get_result(\%result);
 
  foreach $row (@{$result{data}}) {
     my $ligne = '';
     foreach $token (@$row) {
        $ligne .= ", $token";
     }
     print $ligne;
  }


Or, perhaps more succinctly:

  $base->get_result(\%result);

  foreach $row (@{$result{data}}) {
     my $ligne = join(', ', @$row);
     print $ligne;
  }

The answer didn't follow the programming methodology I use.
