Indeed, you can use the DBI-module for this purpose

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use DBI;
use strict;

my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:database:host", 'user', 'password');
my $sql = "update tssuser.tss_elig set assgn_tc = '3700', assgn_dt = to_date(sysdate) where assgn_dt is null and tssc_dt is null and rownum <= (select round(nCases * p37) from dual) - (select count(1) from tssuser.tss_elig where to_date(assgn_dt) = to_date(sysdate) and assgn_tc = '3700')";
$dbh->do("$sql");

and this you can do for all other sql-commands

How can I run the entire sql statement at one time? instead of do a $dbh->do("$sql"); for each update
0
fantasy1001Commented:
I would rather like to use prepare() instead of do() for performance issue. For Do(), you could be preparing a statement handle many times more than is required when execution. Also, Do() only takes care of non querying events.

use DBI;

### The database handle
my $dbh = DBI->connect ( "dbi: Oracle :archaeo", "username", "password" );

### The statement handle
my $sth = $dbh->prepare ( "SELECT id, name FROM megaliths" );
$dbh->execute();

About Running Entire SQL at one time:
I remember there is a UNION keyword with sql. like this
select a from tbl1 where b=1 UNION update tbl2...

Thanks & cheers

The Union command only works for "select" statements, not for update and things like that.  I don't know any method to run a large query like you in one time.  I have wirten a script to parse your mysql-statements and do it one by one [the mysql-commands are stored in a file mysql.txt].  The only problem is that you now also get the declare part and the commit and end-thing.  I don't know whether this is a problem.  
Hope this is a possible solution for you.
Good luck!!


#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use DBI;

my $myDEBUG = 1;
my $file = "mysql.txt";
open FILE, "mysql.txt" || die "Unable to open file $file because $!\n";
my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:database:host", 'user', 'password');

my $sql_command;
while (<FILE>) {
    chomp;
    my $line = $_;
    if ($line =~ /^-|^\//) {
      # comment line -> ignore
      next;
    }
    $line =~ s/\s+$//g; #replace spaces in beginning and end
    $line =~ s/^\s+//g;
    $sql_command .= $line." "; #connect part of line to sql command
    if ($line =~ /;$/) {
      # end of mysql command so do update
      $myDEBUG && print "mysqlcommand --> ", $sql_command, "\n";;
      $dbh->do{$sql_command};
      # reset sqlcommand
      $sql_command = "";
    }
}

if the database server supports multiple queries in the same transaction, you can(should be able) put several sql instructions separated by a ";"
in Postgre, for example, I can add all my update instructions into one string, and then send them to the server as a single transaction (the changes will only be comited if no error is found), but I think I read somewhere that the DBI doesn't  support multiple queries in same transaction.
