a question about mysqldb

db module properly formats arguments, if input arguments are separated from table_name and colum_names.....

columns = ('tID', 'tNote')
table_name = 'tmp'
sql = 'select %s from %s where tID=:1' % ( ', '.join(columns), table_name)
cursor.execute(sql, (1,))

# sql is now 'select tID, tNote from tmp where tID=:1'
# note the comma in argument tuple to execute (1,)

thanks Edwin

I also like to use escaped identifiers in cases like this:

sql = "select tID,tNote from %s where %s = %%s" % ("tmp","tID")

should work fine.
