If you use ODBC (like DBD::ODBC) you can even use cursors.
Just use cursor for outer loop and normal queries for inner ones.
Also consider using other types queries or handle code all in server.
Honestly I had to use client side cursors only a time in my life, in
this case processing every row and updating the same row on some
complicated conditions (where computation was not possible on server).
