Subj:   DBD::Teradata 1.10 is now available on CPAN
From:   Dean Arnold

I am pleased to announce that version 1.10 of DBD::Teradata is now available on CPAN. Please be advised that I still consider this beta software, and your best bet for getting questions answered is to email me directly.

Lots of useful info is available at


Changes since Version 1.00:

- added nonblocking session support (FirstAvailable, Realize driver-specific functions)

- fixed dbh->do() to return -1 for non-data returning statements

- fixed typographical bug in dbh->err()

- added tdat_TITLE, tdat_FORMAT to return title and format info for each returned field

- added SummaryPosition, SummaryPosStart attributes to statement information hash to provide the column number associated with a summary column

- restricted HELP statement processing due to bugs in returned data.

- fixed dbh->prepare() to not create statement handle in event of error

- fixed dbh->execute() to return proper values in case of error or non-data returning statements

- added more complete testing script ("test.pl")

- added proper packaging (Makefile, pod, etc.)

- clarified licensing issues


Please read the README for install issues, esp. for Windows platforms.
