For the case of sendrow with an array reference the problem seems
to be that the return from av_len is being used as the size of the array
in question but according to perlguts it's the highest index in the
array. I was kinda expecting the length myself until I checked the pod.

I was planning on using a per row validation function to catch some
stuff that the database couldn't know about but as it turns out it
doesn't matter since we won't be using bcp at all now.

Hope you are having a nice vacation and that you are getting a little
more sun than we are getting here in sunny Ireland.

Our challenge is to conveniently provide access to progressive sources 
in order that we may collaboratively foster inexpensive meta-services for 
100% customer satisfaction
