NAME

Sql::Textify - Run SQL queries and get the result in text format (markdown, html)

VERSION

Version 0.04

SYNOPSIS

use Sql::Textify;
my $t = Sql::Textify->new;
my $text = $t->textify( $sql );

use Sql::Textify;
my $t = Sql::Textify->new(
    conn => 'dbi:connection:string',
    username => 'username',
            password => 'password',
    format => 'markdown',
);
my $text = $t->textify( $sql );

SYNTAX

This module executes SQL queries and produces text output (markdown, html). Connection details, username and password can be specified in a C-style multiline comment inside the SQL query:

/*
    conn="dbi:SQLite:dbname=test.sqlite3"
    username="myusername"
    password="mypassword"
*/
select * fom gardens;

or they can be specified using the constructor:

my $t = new Sql::Textify(
    conn => 'dbi:SQLite:dbname=test.sqlite3',
    username => 'myusername',
    password => 'mypassword'
);
my $text = $t->textify('select * from gardens');

multiple queries can be separated by ; and also insert/update/create/etc. queries are supported. If the query doesn't return any row the string 0 rows will be returned.

OPTIONS

Sql::Textify supports a number of options to its processor which control the behaviour of the output document.

The options for the processor are:
