Looking at the documentation (3.0006), I see under ListDBs that it is supported because there is "no way of supplying a host name or port number to data_sources", but in the SYNPOSIS there is the following example: @databases = DBI->data_sources("mysql", {"host" => $host, "port" => $port}); I've attached a patch that removes the ambiguity, and also documents that 'password' and 'user' are acceptable parameters for data_sources (I found this in use in dbadmin.t, but didn't see it in the documentation). Thanks, Ann
