TableDef - Table data definition
This document describes version 1.0.7 of TableDef (from Perl distribution TableDef), released on 2016-03-08.
This document describes TableDef, a way to define table data.
In this document, hashes are written in JSON or pseudo-JSON (e.g. contains ellipsis
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL "NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.
A TableDef spec is written in DefHash. It can be used to describe the structure of a relational database table, a CSV file, or an array of hashes. Tools can be written to convert a TableDef hash to SQL's CREATE TABLE statement, or to utilize information in the TableDef hash to format an HTML table, to view a DB grid on the web browser, etc.
From DefHash. Table summary.
From DefHash. Table longer description.
A hash, where the keys are field names and the values field specification. See "FIELD SPECIFICATION".
Specify the primary key for the table. Either a string containing a single field name, or an array of field names (for multi-field key).
Sah schema. This property is required.
From DefHash. Field summary.
From DefHash. Field longer description.
Specify the order of field. Must start from 0 and be contiguous.
Whether this field is mandatory to be present. If 0, then function can choose to omit the field.
Specify whether this field can be sorted.
Specify whether this field can be used as a filter.
Specify whether this field must contain unique values.
This specifies that this field should be shown or included on "default view". What default view is will depend on the context or implementation. Usually you can set this to 0 if the field content is too long or wide. For example, in Perl module Perinci::Sub::Gen::AccessTable, if you give
detail => 1 to the generated function, it will include all fields except fields that has this property set to 0. To include such fields, you'll need to explicitly issue
with.FIELDNAME => 1.
