VERSION

This document describes version 0.002 of DBIx::TSV (from Perl distribution DBIx-TSV), released on 2018-07-02.

SYNOPSIS

 use DBI;
 use DBIx::TSV;
 my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:mysql:database=mydb", "someuser", "somepass");

Generating a row of TSV (with header):

 print $dbh->selectrow_tsv("SELECT * FROM member");

Generating a row of TSV (without header):

Sample result:

 alice   pvt     123456

Generating all rows (with header):

 print $dbh->selectall_tsv("SELECT * FROM member");

Sample result:

 Name    Rank    Serial
 alice   pvt     123456
 bob     cpl     98765321
 carol   brig gen        8745

Generating all rows (without header):

 print $dbh->selectall_tsv_noheader("SELECT * FROM member");

Statement handle versions:

 print $sth->fetchrow_tsv;
 print $sth->fetchrow_tsv_noheader;
 print $sth->fetchall_tsv;
 print $sth->fetchall_tsv_noheader;

DESCRIPTION

This package is a thin glue between DBI and DBIx::TextTableAny (which in turn is a thin glue to Text::Table::Any). It adds the following methods to database handle:

 selectrow_tsv
 selectall_tsv
 selectrow_tsv_noheader
 selectall_tsv_noheader

as well as the following methods to statement handle:

 fetchrow_tsv
 fetchall_tsv
 fetchrow_tsv_noheader
 fetchall_tsv_noheader

The methods send the result of query to Text::Table::Any (using the Text::Table::TSV backend) and return the rendered TSV data.

In essence, this is an easy, straightforward way produce TSV data from SQL query.
