APPENDIX

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

convert_bad_symbols

  Description  : Symbol is a special subclass of metadata which is supposed to be keyword-like
                 Symbols should have no whitespace and should be short enough to fit in the table
                 This method will double check the metadata and any improper Symbol is 
                 converted into EEDB::Metadata and unlinked from database.
                 This is useful when mirroring data or prior to bulk loading.
