This posting did not have much more than I could dig out of the mySQL manual and 'Programming the Perl DBI'. The caveat that storing the images in files was preferable to storing them in blobsbecause of scalability problems was helpful. But I wish there had been a discussion of the size of the image and its relation to the LongReadLen attribute of a database handler. I would like to be able to figure out if storing my images in blobs in the database is feasible.
