NAME

PkgForge::Registry::Schema - The Package Forge registry schema class

VERSION

This documentation refers to PkgForge::Registry::Schema version 1.3.0

SYNOPSIS

   use PkgForge::Registry::Schema;

   my $schema
        = PkgForge::Registry::Schema->connect( $dsn, $user, $pass, \%opts );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides access to the DBIx::Class layer which is used to provide an interface to the Package Forge registry database.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

This class has one method:

connect( $dsn, $user, $pass, \%options )

This takes the DBI Data Source Name (DSN) and, optionally, a username and password to be used for connecting to the database. It can also take a reference to a hash of options which control how the DBI layer functions. A schema object is returned, see DBIx::Class::Schema for details of the available methods for this object.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

This class is not normally loaded directly, instead the PkgForge::Registry module has support for retrieving the database configuration parameters from a configuration file, see that module for details.

DEPENDENCIES

This module requires DBIx::Class, you will also need a DBI driver module such as DBD::Pg.
