=head1 NAME
C4::Category - objects from the categories table
use C4::Category;
my @categories = C4::Category->all;
print join("\n", map { $_->description } @categories), "\n";
Objects of this class represent a row in the C<categories> table.
Currently, the bare minimum for using this as a read-only data source has
been implemented. The API was designed to make it easy to transition to
an ORM later on.

=head2 Class Methods
=head3 C4::Category->new(\%opts)
Given a hashref, a new (in-memory) C4::Category object will be instantiated.
The database is not touched.
sub new {
my ($class, $opts) = @_;
bless $opts => $class;
=head3 C4::Category->all
This returns all the categories as objects. By default they're ordered by
sub all {
my ($class) = @_;
my $dbh = C4::Context->dbh;
return map { $class->new($_) } @{$dbh->selectall_arrayref(
# The categories table is small enough for
# `SELECT *` to be harmless.
"SELECT * FROM categories ORDER BY description",
{ Slice => {} },
