NAME

DBX::Connection - abstracts a connection to a data source

SYNOPSIS

  use DBX;

  $conn = DBX->mysql("database=test;host=localhost;", "", "");

  $rs = $conn->query("SELECT * FROM test");

DESCRIPTION

DBX::Connection currently provides only one method

query(SQL [, HOW, SQL_PARMS])

query runs SQL on its data source. If HOW is DBX_CURSOR_FORWARD, the returned recordset will only move forward. If HOW is DBX_CURSOR_RANDOM, the returned recordset will be navigable in any direction. However, random-access cursors use considerably more memory and processor time than forward-only cursors.

If the SQL statement contains argument placeholders, the DBI will fill them in with SQL_PARMS.

DEPENDENCIES

Requires DBX and all of its dependencies
