NAME ^

HDB::Encode - Hybrid DataBase - HASH/ARRAY enconding.

DESCRIPTION ^

You can save HASH and ARRAY structures inside columns of a table in the database.

** The column that will receive the encoded data need to have a good size for the encoded HASH/ARRAY!

USAGE ^

  my %HASH = (
  'a' => 1 ,
  'b' => 2 ,
  'c' => 3 ,
  'd' => { 'da' => 41 , 'db' => 42 } ,
  'e' => [qw(x y z)] ,
  ) ;
  
  $HDB->insert( 'users' , {
  user => 'joe' ,
  name => 'joe tribianny' ,
  more => \%HASH ,
  } ) ;
  
  ...
  
  $HDB->insert( 'users' , {
  user => 'joe' ,
  name => 'joe tribianny' ,
  more => { a => 1 , b => 2 } ,
  } ) ;
  
  ...
  
  my %hash = $HDB->select( 'users' , 'user == joe' , col => 'more' , '$$@' ) ; # $$@ to return directly the HASH.

METHODS ^

** You don't need to use this methods, HDB will make everything automatically.

Pack (\%HASH or \@ARRAY)

Encode a HASH/ARRAY. Will use Pack_HASH & Pack_ARRAY.

Pack_HASH (\%HASH)

Encode a HASH.

Pack_ARRAY (\@ARRAY)

Encode an ARRAY.

UnPack (ENCODED_HASH or ENCODED_ARRAY)

Decode a HASH/ARRAY. Will use UnPack_HASH & UnPack_ARRAY.

UnPack_HASH (ENCODED_HASH)

Decode a HASH.

UnPack_ARRAY (ENCODED_ARRAY)

Decode an ARRAY.

Is_Packed_HASH (DATA)

Check if the encoded data is a HASH.

Is_Packed_ARRAY (DATA)

Check if the encoded data is an ARRAY.

Check_Pack_Size (DATA)

Check if the encoded data is ok.

Packed_SIZE (\%HASH or \@ARRAY)

Return the size of the HASH/ARRAY encoded. This will calculate the size without generate the encoded data.

Will use Packed_SIZE_HASH & Packed_SIZE_ARRAY.

Packed_SIZE_HASH (\%HASH)

Return the size of the HASH encoded without generate it.

Packed_SIZE_ARRAY (\@ARRAY)

Return the size of the ARRAY encoded without generate it.

ENCODED DATA ^

The encoded HASH/ARRAY are very similar:

  %HDB_PACKED_HASH%[1.0]{50}:DATA

  1.0  >> Format version.
  50   >> DATA size.
  DATA >> The encoded data.
  
  # For ARRAY is:
  %HDB_PACKED_ARRAY%...
  
  ** The data has this begin to identify the encoded data in the database.
  ** The size is used to check if the data is crashed.
  
  DATA for HASH:
  
  02:aa4:bbbb
  
  0    >> normal value. 1 for HASH in the value. 2 for ARRAY in the value.
  2    >> size of key.
  aa   >> key
  4    >> size of value.  
  bbbb >> value
  
  DATA for ARRAY:
  
  02:aa
  
  0  >> normal value. 1 for HASH in the value. 2 for ARRAY in the value.
  2  >> size of value.
  aa >> value
