DBIx::SQLEngine::Record::Set - Array of Record Objects

SYNOPSIS

  use DBIx::SQLEngine::Record::Set;

  $record_set = DBIx::SQLEngine::Record::Set->new( @records );

  $record_set = $record_class->fetch_select( criteria => { status => 2 } );
  
  print "Found " . $record_set->count() . " records";

  $record_set->filter( { 'status' => 'New' } );
  $record_set->sort( 'creation_date' );
  
  foreach ( 0 .. $record_set->count() ) { 
    print $record_set->record( $_ )->name();
  }
  
  foreach ( $record_set->range_records( 11, 20 ) ) { 
    print $_->name();
  }

DESCRIPTION

This package is not yet complete.

The base implementation of RecordSet is an array of Record references.

Constructor

new()
  $class->new ( @records ) : $recordset

Array constructor.

Contents

init()
  $recordset->init ( @records ) 

Array content setter.

records()
  $rs->records() : @records

Array content accessor.

Positional Access

  • $count = $rs->count();

  • $record = $rs->record( $position );

    Return the record in the indicated position in the array.

  • $record = $rs->last_record();

    Return the last record in the array.

Positional Subsets

  • $clone = $rs->range_set( $start_pos, $stop_pos );

    Return a copy of the current set containing only those records at or between the start and stop positions.

  • @records = $rs->range_records( $start_pos, $stop_pos );

    Return the records at or between the start and stop positions.

Sorting

  • $rs->sort( @fieldnames );

    Sort the contents of the set.

  • $clone = $rs->sorted_set( @fieldnames );

    Return a sorted copy of the current set.

  • @records = $rs->sorted_records( @fieldnames );

    Return the records from the current set, in sorted order.

Criteria Matching

  • $rs->filter( $criteria );

    Remove non-matching records from the set.

  • $clone = $rs->filtered_set( $criteria );

    Return a set containing only the matching records from the current set.

  • @records = $rs->filtered_records( $criteria );

    Return the matching records from the current set.

CHANGES

2001-06-29 Moved to DBIx::DBO2 namespace.

2001-04-10 Added last_record.

2000-12-13 Substantial revisions. Moved to EBiz::Database namespace.

2000-12-01 Ed: Created.

Class and IDs

  • $rs = DBIx::SQLEngine::Record::Set->new_class_ids( $class, @ids );

  • $rs->init_class_ids( $class, @ids );

  • ( $class, @ids ) = $rs->class_ids();

Conversions

Each of the below returns a RecordSet blessed into a particular subclass. Returns the original object if it is already of that subclass, or returns a cloned and converted copy.

  • @data = $rs->raw();

    Returns the contents of the RecordSet as stored internally within the object. Results are dependent on which subclass is in use.

  • $rs = $rs->as_RecordArray;

    INCOMPLETE

  • $clone = $rs->as_IDArray;

    INCOMPLETE

  • $clone = $rs->as_IDString;
