NAME ^

AnyData::Format::Pipe - tiedhash & DBI/SQL access to Pipe delimited files

SYNOPSIS ^

 use AnyData;
 my $table = adHash( 'Pipe', $filename,'r',$flags );
 while (my $row = each %$table) {
     print $row->{name},"\n" if $row->{country} =~ /us|mx|ca/;
 }
 # ... other tied hash operations

 OR

  use DBI
 my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:AnyData:');
 $dbh->func('table1','Pipe', $filename,$flags,'ad_catalog');
 my $hits = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
     SELECT name FROM table1 WHERE country = 'us'
 });
 # ... other DBI/SQL operations

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a plug-in format parser for the AnyData and DBD::AnyData modules. It will read column names from the first row of the file, or accept names passed by the user. In addition to column names, the user may set other options as follows:

  col_names   : a pipe separated list of column names

If you are using this with DBD::AnyData, put ad_ in front of the flags, e.g. ad_eol.

Please refer to the documentation for AnyData.pm and DBD::AnyData.pm for further details.
