I'm being told by a Java programmer that use of the bind_param method on a statement handler is more efficient than calling execute with the parameters. He thinks that if I don't use bind_param that Perl does the binding instead of allowing Oracle to do it and so Oracle has to parse two different statements that don't match if I execute it twice. True? False?
Update: And the answer is: false. He checked in the database. He sounded mildly surprised.
