Database queries using the combination DBI + ROracle are handicapped by

quirks in the pipeline between the textual representation of the query

and the database engine Oracle. Comments and linefeed at start are interfering:

dbGetQuery(conn, query):


dbGetQuery(conn, "select * from dual")

dbGetQuery(conn, "select * from dual /* comment */")

dbGetQuery(conn, "select /* comment */ * from dual")


dbGetQuery(conn, "\nselect * from dual")

dbGetQuery(conn, "select\n * from dual")

dbGetQuery(conn, "/* comment */ select * from dual")
