=head1 NAME

Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Blob - Binary large object column metadata.

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  use Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Blob;

  $col = Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Blob->new(...);
  $col->make_methods(...);
  ...

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Objects of this class store and manipulate metadata for long, variable-length character-based columns in a database.  Column metadata objects store information about columns (data type, size, etc.) and are responsible for creating object methods that manipulate column values.

This class inherits from L<Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Character>. Inherited methods that are not overridden will not be documented a second time here.  See the L<Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column::Character> documentation for more information.
