NAME
       DBI::DBD::SqlEngine - Base class for DBI drivers without their own SQL engine

SYNOPSIS
	   package DBD::myDriver;

	   use base qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine);

	   sub driver
	   {
	       ...
	       my $drh = $proto->SUPER::driver($attr);
	       ...
	       return $drh->{class};
	       }

	   package DBD::myDriver::dr;

	   @ISA = qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine::dr);

	   sub data_sources { ... }
	   ...

	   package DBD::myDriver::db;

	   @ISA = qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine::db);

	   sub init_valid_attributes { ... }
	   sub init_default_attributes { ... }
	   sub set_versions { ... }
	   sub validate_STORE_attr { my ($dbh, $attrib, $value) = @_; ... }
	   sub validate_FETCH_attr { my ($dbh, $attrib) = @_; ... }

DESCRIPTION
       DBI::DBD::SqlEngine abstracts the usage of SQL engines from the DBD. DBD authors can
       concentrate on the data retrieval they want to provide.

       It is strongly recommended that you read DBD::File::Developers and DBD::File::Roadmap,
       because many of the DBD::File API is provided by DBI::DBD::SqlEngine.

       Currently the API of DBI::DBD::SqlEngine is experimental and will likely change in the
       near future to provide the table meta data basics like DBD::File.

   Metadata
       The following attributes are handled by DBI itself and not by DBI::DBD::SqlEngine, thus
       they all work as expected:

	   Active
	   ActiveKids
	   CachedKids
	   CompatMode		  (Not used)
	   InactiveDestroy
	   AutoInactiveDestroy
	   Kids
	   PrintError
	   RaiseError
	   Warn 		  (Not used)

       The following DBI attributes are handled by DBI::DBD::SqlEngine:

       AutoCommit

       Always on.

       ChopBlanks

       Works.

       NUM_OF_FIELDS

       Valid after "$sth->execute".

       NUM_OF_PARAMS

       Valid after "$sth->prepare".

       NAME

       Valid after "$sth->execute"; probably undef for Non-Select statements.

       NULLABLE

       Not really working, always returns an array ref of ones, as DBD::CSV does not verify input
       data. Valid after "$sth->execute"; undef for non-select statements.

       The following DBI attributes and methods are not supported:

       bind_param_inout
       CursorName
       LongReadLen
       LongTruncOk

       DBI::DBD::SqlEngine specific attributes

       In addition to the DBI attributes, you can use the following dbh attributes:

       sql_engine_version

       Contains the module version of this driver (readonly)

       sql_nano_version

       Contains the module version of DBI::SQL::Nano (readonly)

       sql_statement_version

       Contains the module version of SQL::Statement, if available (readonly)

       sql_handler

       Contains the SQL Statement engine, either DBI::SQL::Nano or SQL::Statement (readonly).

       sql_parser_object

       Contains an instantiated instance of SQL::Parser (readonly).  This is filled when used
       first time (only when used with SQL::Statement).

       sql_sponge_driver

       Contains an internally used DBD::Sponge handle (readonly).

       sql_valid_attrs

       Contains the list of valid attributes for each DBI::DBD::SqlEngine based driver
       (readonly).

       sql_readonly_attrs

       Contains the list of those attributes which are readonly (readonly).

       sql_identifier_case

       Contains how DBI::DBD::SqlEngine deals with non-quoted SQL identifiers:

	 * SQL_IC_UPPER(1) means all identifiers are internally converted
	   into upper-cased pendants
	 * SQL_IC_LOWER(2) means all identifiers are internally converted
	   into lower-cased pendants
	 * SQL_IC_MIXED(4) means all identifiers are taken as they are

       These conversions happen if (and only if) no existing identifier matches.  Once existing
       identifier is used as known.

       The SQL statement execution classes doesn't have to care, so don't expect
       "sql_identifier_case" affects column names in statements like

	 SELECT * FROM foo

       sql_quoted_identifier_case

       Contains how DBI::DBD::SqlEngine deals with quoted SQL identifiers (readonly). It's
       fixated to SQL_IC_SENSITIVE(3), which is interpreted as SQL_IC_MIXED.

       sql_flags

       Contains additional flags to instantiate an SQL::Parser. Because an SQL::Parser is
       instantiated only once, it's recommended to set this flag before any statement is
       executed.

       sql_dialect

       Controls the dialect understood by SQL::Parser. Possible values (delivery state of
       SQL::Statement):

	 * ANSI
	 * CSV
	 * AnyData

       Defaults to "CSV".  Because an SQL::Parser is instantiated only once and SQL::Parser
       doesn't allow to modify the dialect once instantiated, it's strongly recommended to set
       this flag before any statement is executed (best place is connect attribute hash).

   Where can I go for more help?
       For questions about installation or usage, please ask on the dbi-dev@perl.org mailing
       list.

       If you have a bug report, patch or suggestion, please open a new report ticket on CPAN, if
       there is not already one for the issue you want to report. Of course, you can mail any of
       the module maintainers, but it is less likely to be missed if it is reported on RT.

       Report tickets should contain a detailed description of the bug or enhancement request you
       want to report and at least an easy way to verify/reproduce the issue and any supplied
       fix. Patches are always welcome, too.
