Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

MySQL Tables Altered?

[ #32357 ]

Anyone happen to know, offhand, how I can check to see if any table in MySQL has been altered? This is MySQL 4.1.15. Obviously "SELECT count(*) ..." could fail as could checking which keys are present in a given table. Something as simple as an UPDATE statement can easily foil both of those checks. I've tried 'SHOW STATUS ...', but that also fails. The only thing I can think of is to use a DBI trace to capture SQL and look for INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statements and try and parse them for the appropriate tables.

Google's given me no love on this problem.
