MySQL query error

I have this query set up to print out to a file. In the foreach section, I am under the impression that it will go through each row of the database and print out the data that I have in the file print. It just prints the same record over 6 times, which is the number of COLUMS I have in the database:

        my $q2 = qq{ SELECT * FROM dejagnu };
        my $rs2 = $dbh->prepare ( $q2 );
        $rs2->execute();
        my @dejadata2 = @{$rs2->{NAME}};
        while (my $ref5 = $rs2->fetchrow_hashref() )
        {
            #write all the parameters to the .bashrc file
            open(fileOUT, ">.dejagnurc") || die "Could not open configuration file";
            flock(fileOUT, 2);
            print fileOUT "global env\n\n";
            print fileOUT "\# Flush out \"/data_logging\" or \"/rms\" for the PRODUCT env variable.\n";
            #dynamically changed variables
            foreach (@dejadata2) {
                print fileOUT "$ref5->{deviceType} {\n";
                print fileOUT " set dut(ip)       \"$ref5->{ip}\"\n";
                print fileOUT " set dut(subnet)   \"$ref5->{subnet}\"\n";
                print fileOUT " set dut(gateway)  \"$ref5->{gateway}\"\n";
                print fileOUT " set upsType       \"$ref5->{upsType}\"\n";
                print fileOUT "}\n";
            }
            close (fileOUT);

Hi k41d3n,

1. I think you should open the file before you start to retrieve records.
2. You're looping over the column names with 'foreach (@dejadata2)', but you're printing the complete record in there. That means you'll get as many copies as there are columns. Since you're not actually using the column names, I think you can remove that foreach and just leave its loop body.

HTH,
Kandura
