Hi there,

I am just moving code from one server to another, where my current code uses the following syntax to get all the variables returning from the sql output (saves defining each time)....

                while( $hash =  $sth->fetchrow_hashref() )
                          {
                                           foreach( keys %$hash ){
                             $$_ = $hash->{$_}
                                 }

However now the server uses the folowing syntax, and I am not sure how to convert the statement above to "catch all" the output ......

      while (%hash = $sth->fetchhash)
      {
            $pagetemplate=$hash{'pagetemplate'};
            $fulltitledisplay=$hash{'fulltitle'};
            $pageviews=$hash{'pageviews'};
      }

can someone help me out please!

You're looking for:

while (%hash = $sth->fetchhash) {
  foreach (keys %hash) {
    $$_ = $hash{$_};
  }
}

The only difference here is that you're working with a hash and not a hash reference as in your first example.

Note that neither this nor your code above will work under strict, because you're creating variable variables on-the-fly as it were.

Hope this helps,

Tom
