DESCRIPTION

This class represents a DELETE query.

METHODS

This class provides the following methods:

Constructor

To construct an object of this class, call $query->delete() on a Fey::SQL object.

$delete->delete()

This method is basically a no-op that exists to so that Fey::SQL has something to call after it constructs an object in this class.

$delete->from(...)

This method specifies the FROM clause of the query. It expects one or more Fey::Table objects (not aliases). Most RDBMS implementations only allow for a single table here, but some (like MySQL) do allow for multi-table deletes.

$delete->where(...)

See the Fey::SQL section on WHERE Clauses for more details.

$delete->order_by(...)

See the Fey::SQL section on ORDER BY Clauses for more details.

$delete->limit(...)

See the Fey::SQL section on LIMIT Clauses for more details.

$delete->sql()

Returns the full SQL statement which this object represents. A DBI handle must be passed so that identifiers can be properly quoted.

$delete->bind_params()

See the Fey::SQL section on Bind Parameters for more details.

ROLES

This class does Fey::Role::SQL::HasWhereClause, Fey::Role::SQL::HasOrderByClause, and Fey::Role::SQL::HasLimitClause roles.
