Subject: sybperl collapsing space columns
Date: Nov 13 1998 6:51PM

I am not sure if this was raised here before but I have a problem with 
reading columns that have empty spaces into a (syb)perl array. For 
example, I have 

@A=$dfh->sql ("select * from tbl");
foreach $r (@A) { print @{$r} . "\n"; }

where tbl has 2 columns

colA   colB
xx     '   '    -- 4 spaces

and examining the array in the debugger gives me

   1  'XX'
   2  ' '

seems to me that sybperl is collapsing the multiple spaces into one. any 
work arounds would be appreciated. thanks

Raja
