SQL::Tokenizer and Tao::DBI

[ #32386 ]

I've been working last week on SQL::Tokenizer, which was used to, erm, tokenize a SQL query correctly to extract named placeholders for a DBI subclass I'm working on. It is actually using the known-and-loved Perl's regular expression engine, but maybe I can write a version using Pugs::Compiler::Rule, let's see.

About the DBI subclass I mentioned above, Adriano wrote the Tao::DBI, which is a proxy to DBI that implements the named placeholders concept. I liked that and re-implemented the Tao::DBI as a subclass of DBI, but since it is not backward compatible with Adriano's one, I have to found another name for it before release.

Any suggestion?

  • I've been thinking of doing something similar for some SQL::Statement subclasses I've been working on, but you beat me to it. (S::S just does progressive regexes, which makes for some very muddy code at times). Should be very helpful in getting those subclasses done.

    BTW: I noted you only support ANSI comments; have you considered support for C style "/* ... */" comments ? (many databases support the latter).

    Also wrt named placeholders, I don't know if its possible, but it might be nifty to directly refe

    • I thank you for using my code :-) I'll implement the C style comments, following your suggestion.

      I'll see if the direct references to Perl variables when using named placeholders is a Good Thing(tm).

      I'm planning to release the code-that-was-named Tao::DBI when I find a new name for that. Some friends of mine suggested DBIx::WithPlaceholder, but I'm planning to ask about it at Perlmonks.
