Constructor and initialization

new(...) returns an object of type WWW::Scraper::Wikipedia::ISO3166::Database.

This is the class's contructor.

Usage: WWW::Scraper::Wikipedia::ISO3166::Database -> new().

This method takes a hash of options.

Call new() as new(option_1 => value_1, option_2 => value_2, ...).

Available options:

o attributes => $hash_ref

This is the hashref of attributes passed to DBI's connect() method.

Default: {AutoCommit => 1, RaiseError => 1, sqlite_unicode => 1}
