NAME ^

VUser::ExtLib::SQL - Common functions for handling SQL with in vuser

DESCRIPTION ^

VUser::ExtLib::SQL contains common functions and features for working with databases. It has both a functional and an object-oriented interface. The OO interface offers more features such as macros.

Class Methods ^

new

 VUser::ExtLib::SQL->new($cfg, $paramters);
$cfg

The config hash

$paramters
 { user => 'foo',
   password => 'bar',
   dsn => 'dbi:mysql:database=baz',
   macros => { 'u' => 'username',
               'p' => 'password'
              }
 }

execute

Execute a SQL query.

There are a few predefined macros that you can use in your SQL. The values will be quoted and escaped before being inserted into the SQL. You can specify your own custom macros if you use the OO interface for VUser::ExtLib::SQL. See new above.

%%

Unquoted %

%-option

This will be replaced by the value of --option passed in when vuser is called.

%$option

This will be replaced by the value of $args{option} passed to execute(). option may only match \w or -. For example:

 my $db = VUser::ExtUtil::SQL->new(...);
 my $sth = $db->execute($opts,
                        "select * from foo where bar = %$bar",
                        {bar => 'baz'} );
 # Possibly get results with $sth->fetchrow_*
 $sth->finish;

execute() returns the statement handle after $sth->execute() has been run. Remember to run $sth->finish() on the returned statement handle when you're done with it.

%\option

WARNING: This is a very dangerous option and must be handled with care. If you don't need to use it, don't use it.

Replace the option with the unescaped value of the option. This does not use placeholders like the other options above. All quoting, escaping, etc. is left to the caller to handle before passing the value to execute().

db_connect

Connect to the database.

Returns a DBI database handle.
