Runs a prepared statement against the database, returning the results in a PyDataSet.. Prepared statements differ from regular queries in that they can use a special placeholder, the question-mark character ( ? ) in the query where any dynamic arguments would go, and then use an array of values to provide real information for those arguments. Make sure that the length of your argument array matches the number of question-mark placeholders in your query.
This call should be used for SELECT queries. This is a useful alternative to system.db.runQuery because it allows values in the WHERE clause, JOIN clause, and other clauses to be specified without having to turn those values into strings . This is safer because it protects against a problem known as a SQL injection attack, where a user can input data that affects the query's semantics.

system.db. runPrepQuery( query, args, database, tx )
String query - A query (typically a SELECT) to run as a prepared statement with placeholders (?) denoting where the arguments go.
Object args - A list of arguments. Will be used in order to match each placeholder (?) found in the query.
String database - The name of the database connection to execute against. If omitted or "", the project's default database connection will be used.
String tx - A transaction identifier. If omitted, the query will be executed in its own transaction.
PyDataSet - The results of the query as a PyDataSet
