Subject: Implement bulk operations via DBI's execute_array interface
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 479b
DBD modules can override DBI's default implementation of execute_array (and bind_param_array) to use an optimised bulk operation to perform the action. DBD::Oracle does not seem to do this, although I have seen a patch posted as early as 2003 on the perl-DBI-dev mailing list apparently implementing this feature (See: ) This could be a great benefit for scripts inserting large amount of data into a database.

Looking at the code it seems it does support it. I am not sure exactly what you want to do. I know it will not work for Selects but it will work for queries that do not return rows, (insert delete etc) If you can give me an example of the code you want to try I will see what is or is not working.

It does support it as DBI defaults to calling execute multiple times when the driver doesn't implement execute_array. What I want implemented is an optimisation, so that inserting or updating multiple rows is faster than calling execute for each.

Well it supports it now. I just in the process of applying an old patch that was never included for other reasons. You can get the new code in a zip file at executearray.ZIP It is still in testing mode but it seem to be very stable now
