Why do I keep getting data truncated errors in my Perl?

If you are getting truncation errors when retrieving data for a column check what sort of column it is. Perl DBI needs to be told about long columns or the data will be truncated. You can do this just after a DBI->connect with:

$dbh->{LongReadLen} = 32768; # some big number
