Subject: Unwanted debugging output appears on console
I'm running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2, ActivePerl 5.12.4, DBI 1.616 and DBD-ODBC 1.31 (in the 'site' area, ActivePerl came with 1.29 in the 'perl' area). I wrote a script to test database fetches, and in the console appeared a number of lines that just said 'HERE'. I used the debugger that comes with the ActiveState Perl Development Kit to step through the program, and the lines appeared when the statement $st->bind_param() was being called. So (using TextPad, my preferred text editor), I searched all files in my c:\Perl\site\lib directory for an all upper-case word 'HERE' and found it in the file: C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\DBD\ODBC\ODBC.dll FYI, the file properties say the file was created on Tuesday, November 08, 2011, 10:27:21 AM and has size 98,405 bytes TextPad actually allowed me to change the string 'HERE' to the string 'DEIG' and sure enough, when I re-ran my test script, the 'HERE' lines now appear as 'DEIG'. I'm assuming that someone left some debugging code in there. I hadn't seen this behavior before, but some of the recent

Gross embarressment - I always diff stuff before checking in so I'm amazed I missed this. I will remove it from the subversion trunk tonight and it will be fixed in the next release which will be in the next few days. You can remove it yourself so long as you install MinGW from ActiveState. Just download latest DBD::ODBC, untar it and edit dbdimp.c to remove the printf containing "HERE". Write it out then do run cpan and install . Thanks again for the report. The debug is in an obscure area of DBD::ODBC so few people are going to see it but it needs fixing. Martin -- Martin J.

Fixed in trunk of subversion now. Thanks Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK
