How To Execute UPDATE query to MySQL Database Server using Perl Language?

In previous few posts I explained to you about how to make use of the perl DBI modules for making SELECT, INSERT query. Now let's take a look at the UPDATE query that you can make to the mysql database and get the content as updated in the rows or so depending on where you want it to be updated. So let's take a look at the sample UPDATE query that can show you how to do that.

my  $sql  =  "UPDATE table_name SET col_name = ? WHERE id=?";

Here the table_name should be replaced by your table and col_name should be replaced by your column which needs update. And you can find that specific column using id as primary key. You can think of multiple scenarios such as this to writer your query.
