SYNOPSIS

    my $dsn = parse_dsn("dbi:SQLite:database=/var/foo.db");

    $dsn->scheme; ## dbi
    $dsn->driver; ## SQLite
    $dsn->database; ## /var/foo.db

    $dsn->dbd_driver; ## DBD::SQLite

    ## information in user string
    my $dsn2 = parse_dsn( 'dbi:Oracle:host=foobar;port=1521', 'scott@DB/tiger' )
    $dsn2->database; ## DB
    $dsn2->port; ## 1521
    $dsn2->host; ## foobar

    ## uri connector
    my $dsn3 = parse_dsn( 'dbi:Oracle://myhost:1522/ORCL' )

    $dsn3->host; ## myhost

DESCRIPTION

Exports parse_dsn that parses a DSN. It returns a DBIx::ParseDSN::Default that has attributes from the dsn.

This module looks for parser classes of the form DBIx::ParseDSN::Foo, where Foo literally matches the DSN driver, ie the 2nd part of the DSN string. Case sensitive.

Example: dbi:SQLite:database=/foo/bar would look for DBIx::ParseDSN::SQLite and use that as a parser, if found.

If DBIx::ParseDSN::Foo is loaded, it uses that. If the module can be loaded, it will load it.

It falls back to DBIx::ParseDSN::Default if no specific parser is found.

To implement not supported DBI driver strings, subclass DBIx::ParseDSN::Default and reimplement sub parse or change for example sub names_for_database if database is just called something else.

INTERFACE

parse_dsn( $dsn );

Parses a DSN and returns a DBIx::ParseDSN::Default object that has properties reflecting the parameters found in the DSN.

See "DSN ATTRIBUTES" in DBIx::ParseDSN::Default for details.
