NAME

XML::DB::File - XML:DB driver for a simple file system

SYNOPSIS

my $driver = 'File'; my $url = '/usr/local/somewhere';

eval{ $dbm = new XML::SimpleDB::DatabaseManager(); $dbm->registerDatabase($driver); $col = $dbm->getCollection("xmldb:$driver:$url/db/test"); };

if ($@){ die $@; }

DESCRIPTION

This is the driver for a simple XML File system. It is intended to be used through the XML:DB API, so that it is never called directly from user code. It implements the internal API defined in XML::DB::Database.

This is not a database; it is simply a driver for flat files, with no indexing; it was created as a convenience for testing and for transferring files between a file system and a real database.
