NAME

DBIx::Migration::Directories::Database::mysql - Handle quirks with DBD::mysql

SYNOPSIS

  my $dbh = DBIx::Transaction->connect('DBI:mysql:database=test');

  my $migration = DBIx::Migration::Directories->new(
    dbh     => $dbh,
    schema  => 'MySchema',
    ...
  );

DESCRIPTION

The following methods had to be written differently so that they behave properly under MySQL:

sql_table_exists($table)

See "sql_table_exists" in DBIx::Migration::Directories::Base.

MySQL 4.x does not support the SQL standard "information_schema". This sql_table_exists method instead uses MySQL's custom "SHOW TABLES" syntax to verify the existance of a table.
