Looking at the DBI docs, it says, "For some drivers the $catalog,
$schema, $table, and $field parameters are required (e.g., Pg)..."
Actually, $catalog should be undef (no such concept in Pg), but the
schema is probably 'public' or your username, unless you're using
different schemas. Anyhow, I'm puzzled, but I have a fix. After
you've checked whether the INSERT succeeded (you're doing that anyway,
RIGHT?!? ;) just do:
Not quite as convenient, and I've got a query in to the DBD::Pg dev
team, but it will work.
