NAME

AnyData::Format::Paragraph - tiedhash & DBI/SQL access to vertical files

SYNOPSIS

 use AnyData;
 my $table = adHash( 'Paragraph', $filename,'r',$flags );
 while (my $row = each %$table) {
    print $row->{name},"\n" if $row->{country} =~ /us|mx|ca/;
 }
 # ... other tied hash operations
 OR
 use DBI
 my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:AnyData:');
 $dbh->func('table1','Paragraph', $filename,$flags,'ad_catalog');
 my $hits = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
     SELECT name FROM table1 WHERE country = 'us'
 });
 # ... other DBI/SQL operations

DESCRIPTION

This is a plug-in format parser for the AnyData and DBD::AnyData modules.
It handles "vertical" files in which the record name occurs on a line by itself followed by records on lines by themselves, e.g.
 Photoslop
 /My Photos/
 .jpg, .gif, .psd
 Nutscrape
 /htdocs/
 .html, .htm
