NAME DBD::monetdb - MonetDB Driver for DBI SYNOPSIS use DBI(); my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:monetdb:'); my $sth = $dbh->prepare('SELECT * FROM env'); $sth->execute; $sth->dump_results; DESCRIPTION DBD::monetdb is a Pure Perl client interface for the MonetDB Database Server. It requires MonetDB::CLI (and one of its implementations). PREREQUISITES DBI MonetDB::CLI MonetDB (http://monetdb.cwi.nl) INSTALLATION To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL make 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. TESTING The supplied tests will connect to the database using the DBI environment variables, e.g.: set DBI_DSN=dbi:monetdb: set DBI_DSN=dbi:monetdb:host=localhost 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 DBI_USER=test set DBI_PASS=secret Make sure libMapi is in your library search path (depending on the MonetDB::CLI implementations in use). The tests will create tables with the name (or prefix) 'perl_dbd_test' in the current schema. Check for the unlikly case that this will cause unwanted side effects! To run the tests, type make test If all tests pass, you'll see something like: t/01base.....ok ... t/75mil......ok All tests successful. Files=22, Tests=412, 10 wallclock secs ... It is possible to run individual test scripts, e.g.: perl -w -Mblib t/02cxn.t BTW: You can test the ODBC driver when setting the DSN appropriately, e.g.: set DBI_DSN=dbi:ODBC:driver=MonetDB ODBC Driver AUTHORS Martin Kersten <Martin.Kersten@cwi.nlE> implemented the initial Mapi based version of the driver (monet.pm). Arjan Scherpenisse <email@example.comE> renamed this module to monetdbPP.pm and derived the new MapiLib based version (monetdb.pm). Current maintainer is Steffen Goeldner <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
