I want to prepare a string for mysql insert by handling a single quote

I have string with single quotes that I need to handle before inserting into mysql.

Quote examples are      hel'lo    or   hello'    or  'hello


How can I use a perl regex to add another single quote in front of the single quote within the string?

hel''lo

Two single quotes doesn't provide an escape sequence in MySQL.  It does work in Microsoft SQL Server / T-SQL.  Which one are you working with?
