== DESCRIPTION:

  A simple wrapper for dbi that provides two simple functions,
  and auth profiles via a configuration file.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* PROBLEM: no tests => I have some, but they point at local databases and I have not gotten around to making nice mocky ones.

== SYNOPSIS:

DISCLAMER: The DBI api is fine and in most contexts should be used directly.
I wrote it as a little helper for the hundreds of tiny csv outputers,
backfills, and other assorted one-off sys-admin data munghing scripts scripts
that I write. This script intoduces three methods into the Object namespace, it
should not be used in a larger project. Please keep that in mind.

A simple wrapper for dbi that provides two simple functions:

  dbconnect(dbname="test", host="localhost", user="root", pass="")
  dbconnect(profile_key)

uses my most common defaults

  query(sql, *values)

which returns the last_insert_id() for auto increment table inserts
and yields row when selecting.

  ascii_query(sql, *values)

select query output much like mysql's commandline client

== Config file $HOME/.mydbirc

A yaml configuration file for named database connections

  ---
  :databaseone:
    :name: db_one
    :host: localhost
    :username: root
    :password:
  :databasetwo:
    :name: db_two
    :host: other_host
    :username: root
    :password: secret

Then you can pass the symbol is as the db name

  db1 = dbconnect(:databaseone)

  db2 = dbconnect(:databasetwo)

== Example:

  require 'mydbi'

  dbconnect(:databaseone)

  lastn_id = query("insert into lastn (id, ord, song_id) values (null, 1, 10)");
  
  query("select * from lastn") do |row|
    puts row.inspect
  end
