Re: [brosskgm] Perl MySQL help with code.

Simply saying the script doesn't work is a poor problem description. You should explain in what way it's failing and what errors/warnings it produces.

There are a number of things I'd change, but the initial problem with the database code is in your connection statement. Using single quotes around the vars will prevent interpolation which means that you're passing $user and $pw as literal strings rather than passing the values that those vars hold.


Code
my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$database:$host" , $user, $pw)  
or die "Connection Error: $DBI::errstr\n";
