Item Description: A Simple Database Abstraction
Class::DBI is quite a simple module really, mainly you inherit it's methods and go off about your business.
Other useful methods:
Allows you to construct an SQL query snippet and call it through your object.
Allows you to consruct your own SQL query like so:
(NOTE: You inlining the entire WHERE clause)
Class::DBI::AbstractSearch A search class provided by Class::DBI that allows you to write arbitrarily complex searches using perl data structures, rather than SQL.
These are just a few of the features of Class::DBI that I have found quite useful. Check the module out for yourself, it cut my development time in at least half.
