Subject: DBD::Pg documentation appears inaccurate with regard to AutoCommit implementation
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 806b
DBD::Pg documentation says: "DBD::Pg implements AutoCommit by issuing a BEGIN statement immediately before executing a statement, and a COMMIT afterwards." ( However, this is not the observed behavior (and for good reason--PostgreSQL's default behavior is the same as AutoCommit) A simple test script demonstrates the inaccuracy of the documentation: --------------- #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use DBI; my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Pg:dbname=test"); print "AutoCommit = $dbh->{AutoCommit}\n"; $dbh->do('INSERT INTO foo(x) VALUES (1)'); --------------- The script's output: AutoCommit = 1 And my PostgreSQL logs (with log_statement = 'all'): 2012-03-05 20:21:02 CST rootLOG: statement: INSERT INTO foo(x) VALUES (1)
Thank you, that is confusing. We will fix it up.
