It's not clear to me why you're having a problem with this. In the version
of MySQLdb I use (0.9.2), longs are passed through
MySQLdb.converters.Thing2Str before being folded into an SQL statement:
def Thing2Str(s, d):
"""Convert something into a string via str()."""
If s is a long, str(s) returns a string containing only digits in Python
2.1, 2.2 and 2.3.
Nonetheless, if things aren't working for you, you can add a custom
converter to your MySQLdb connection which maps longs to ints. Try
something like this:
def Long2Str(s, d):
converter = MySQLdb.converters.conversions
converter[long] = Long2Str
conn = MySQLdb.Connection(..., conv=converter)
If you need help straight from the horse's mouth (Andy Dustman), your best
bet is to post a question to the help forum on the mysql-python project
website on SourceForge: <http://sf.net/projects/mysql-python>.
