APPENDIX

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

prepare_delete_sth

 Title   : prepare_delete_sth
 Usage   :
 Function: Creates a prepared statement with one placeholder variable suitable
           to delete one row from the respective table the given class maps to.

           The method may throw an exception, or the database handle methods
           involved may throw an exception.
 Example :
 Returns : A DBI statement handle for a prepared statement with one placeholder
 Args    : The database handle to use for preparing the statement.
           The class of which a corresponding entry shall be deleted. 
           Optionally, additional (named) arguments.

cascade_delete

 Title   : cascade_delete
 Usage   :
 Function: Removes all persistent objects dependent from the given persistent
           object from the database (foreign key integrity).

           The method may throw an exception, or the database calls
           involved may throw an exception.

           If the RDBMS supports cascading deletes, and the schema definition
           enabled FK constraints with cascading deletes, then the
           implementation won''t need to do anything.
 Example :
 Returns : TRUE on success, and FALSE otherwise
 Args    : The DBContextI implementing object for the database.
           The object for which the dependent rows shall be deleted. 
           Optionally, additional (named) arguments.
