DBIx::SQLEngine::Driver::XBase - Support DBD::XBase driver
DBI Wrapper: Adds methods to a DBI database handle.
my $sqldb = DBIx::SQLEngine->new( 'dbi:XBase:my_data_path' );
Portability Subclasses: Uses driver's idioms or emulation.
$hash_ary = $sqldb->fetch_select( table => 'students' limit => 5, offset => 10 );
This package provides a subclass of DBIx::SQLEngine which compensates for some of DBD::XBase's idiosyncrasies.
Note that DBD::XBase does not support the normal full range of SQL DBMS functionality. Consult the documentation to understand its current limits.
You do not need to use this package directly; when you connect to a database, the SQLEngine object is automatically re-blessed in to the appropriate subclass.
$sqldb->sql_detect_table ( $tablename ) : %sql_select_clauses
Implemented using DBD::XBase's "select * from $tablename where 1 = 0".
$sqldb->dbms_null_becomes_emptystring () : 1
Capability Limitation: This driver does not store real null or undefined values, converting them instead to empty strings.
