NAME ^

Parse::Dia::SQL - Convert Dia class diagrams into SQL.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Parse::Dia::SQL;
    my $dia = Parse::Dia::SQL->new(
      file => 't/data/TestERD.dia',
      db   => 'db2'
    );
    print $dia->get_sql();

    # or command-line version
    perl parsediasql --file t/data/TestERD.dia --db db2

DESCRIPTION ^

Dia is a diagram creation program for Linux, Unix and Windows released under the GNU General Public License.

Parse::Dia::SQL converts Dia class diagrams into SQL.

Parse::Dia::SQL is the parser that interprets the .dia file(s) into an internal datastructure.

Parse::Dia::SQL::Output (or one of its sub classes) can take the datastructure and generate the SQL statements it represents.

MODELLING HOWTO ^

See http://tedia2sql.tigris.org/usingtedia2sql.html

Modelling differences from tedia2sql

DIA VERSIONS ^

Parse::Dia::SQL has been tested with Dia versions 0.93 - 0.97.

Parse::Dia::SQL uses the XML version tag information in the .dia input file to determine how each XML construct is formatted. Future versions of Dia may change the internal format, and XML version tag is used to detect such changes.

DATABASE SUPPORT ^

The following databases are supported:

DB2
Informix
Ingres
Oracle
Postgres
Sas
SQLite3
SQLite3fk (with foreign key support)
Sybase
MySQL InnoDB
MySQL MyISAM

Adding support for additional databases means to create a subclass of Parse::Dia::SQL::Output.

Patches are welcome.

AUTHOR ^

Parse::Dia::SQL is based on tedia2sql by Tim Ellis and others. See the AUTHORS file for details.
