Subject: (MySQL) table names not correctly quoted in queries
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.3k
I'm using Class::DBI in a parser that fills the output of a config dump script into a MySQL database. We've several link tables here, which are named in the manner of "TABLE1-TABLE2", with "TABLE1" and "TABLE2" beeing the respective names of the tables where the foreign keys come from. When accessing these tables with Class::DBI, the query fails. Error message is: Model::Cluster_Serv can't SELECT cluster_id FROM CLUSTER-SERV : DBD::mysql::st execute failed: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '-SERV' at line 2 [for Statement "SELECT cluster_id FROM CLUSTER-SERV "] at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/DBIx/ line 52. at line 79 I can supply the perl code that causes the error message, but I guess it's pretty much clear what goes wrong. When I use something like "Model::Fobar->table('`CLUSTER-SERV`')" instead of the version without backticks, it works, which makes me think there's a bug within Class::DBI. While investigating, I found that the table names do not get quoted in &Class::DBI::Query::table. I am, however, hesitant to replace the simple join with something that adds backticks around table names because I'm not sure whether the `TABLENAME` syntax is MySQL-specific or not. Thanks for any reply. :-)
