  To install this module type the following:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make test
    make install

  You need to use the correct make command. That may be nmake or dmake,
  depending on which development environment you are using.


  The supplied tests will connect to the database using some
  environment variables, e.g.:

    set MONETDB_HOST=myhost
    set MONETDB_PORT=4711

  Don't specify port and language (if possible). The server should
  listen on the default ports for sql and mapi.

  If the server doesn't accept the default username/password, then
  set the relevant environment variables, e.g.:

    set MONETDB_USER=test
    set MONETDB_PASS=secret
