NAME

  Jifty::DBI::Handle::Informix - An Informix specific Handle object

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a subclass of Jifty::DBI::Handle that compensates for some of the idiosyncrasies of Informix.

METHODS

insert

Takes a table name as the first argument and assumes that the rest of the arguments are an array of key-value pairs to be inserted.

If the insert succeeds, returns the id of the insert, otherwise, returns a Class::ReturnValue object with the error reported.

case_sensitive

Returns 1, since Informix's searches are case sensitive by default

apply_limits STATEMENTREF ROWS_PER_PAGE FIRST_ROW

takes an SQL SELECT statement and massages it to return ROWS_PER_PAGE starting with FIRST_ROW;

disconnect

Disconnects and removes the reference to the handle for Informix.

distinct_query STATEMENTREF

takes an incomplete SQL SELECT statement and massages it to return a DISTINCT result set.
