DBIx-Perlish version 0.55 DBIx::Perlish - a perlish interface to SQL databases. DESCRIPTION The DBIx::Perlish module provides the ability to work with databases supported by the DBI module using Perl's own syntax for four most common operations: SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE, and INSERT. By using DBIx::Perlish, you can write most of your database queries using a domain-specific language with Perl syntax. Since a Perl programmer knows Perl by definition, and might not know SQL to the same degree, this approach generally leads to a more comprehensible and maintainable code. The module is not intended to replace 100% of SQL used in your program. There is a hope, however, that it can be used to replace a substantial portion of it. The DBIx::Perlish module quite intentionally neither implements nor cares about database administration tasks like schema design and management. The plain DBI interface is quite sufficient for that. Similarly, and for the same reason, it does not take care of establishing database connections or handling transactions. All this is outside the scope of this module. INSTALLATION To install this module, run the following commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install DEPENDENCIES Perl 5.8.2, DBI, PadWalker (optional).
