NAME

App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite - Information about SQLite

SYNOPSIS

  use App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite;
  my $sqlite = App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite->new;
  if ($sqlite->installed) {
      print "App name: ", $sqlite->name, "\n";
      print "Version:  ", $sqlite->version, "\n";
      print "Bin dir:  ", $sqlite->bin_dir, "\n";
  } else {
      print "SQLite is not installed. :-(\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION

App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite supplies information about the SQLite application installed on the local system. It implements all of the methods defined by App::Info::RDBMS. Methods that trigger events will trigger them only the first time they're called (See App::Info for documentation on handling events). To start over (after, say, someone has installed SQLite) construct a new App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite object to aggregate new meta data.
Some of the methods trigger the same events. This is due to cross-calling of shared subroutines. However, any one event should be triggered no more than once. For example, although the info event "Executing `pg_config --version`" is documented for the methods "name()", "version()", "major_version()", "minor_version()", and "patch_version()", rest assured that it will only be triggered once, by whichever of those four methods is called first.

INTERFACE

Constructor

new
  my $sqlite = App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite->new(@params);
Returns an App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite object. See App::Info for a complete description of argument parameters.
When it called, "new()" searches the directories returned by search_bin_dirs for an executable with a name returned by "search_exe_names". If found, it will be called by the object methods below to gather the data necessary for each. If it cannot be found, then "new()" will attempt to load DBD::SQLite or DBD::SQLite2. These DBI drivers have SQLite embedded in them but do not install the application. If these fail, then SQLite is assumed not to be installed, and each of the object methods will return "undef".
Events:
info
Looking for SQLite.
confirm
Path to SQLite executable?
unknown
Path to SQLite executable?

Class Method

key_name
  my $key_name = App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite->key_name;
Returns the unique key name that describes this class. The value returned is the string "SQLite".

Object Methods

installed
  print "SQLite is ", ($sqlite->installed ? '' : 'not '), "installed.\n";
Returns true if SQLite is installed, and false if it is not.
App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite determines whether SQLite is installed based on the presence or absence of the sqlite3 or sqlite application on the file system as found when "new()" constructed the object. If SQLite does not appear to be installed, then all of the other object methods will return empty values.
name
  my $name = $sqlite->name;
Returns the name of the application. App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite simply returns the value returned by "key_name" if SQLite is installed, and "undef" if it is not installed.
version
  my $version = $sqlite->version;
Returns the SQLite version number. App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite parses the version number from the system call "`sqlite -version`" or retrieves it from DBD::SQLite.
Events:
info
Executing `sqlite -version`
error
Failed to find SQLite version with `sqlite -version`
 
Failed to retrieve SQLite version from DBD::SQLite
 
Unable to parse name from string
 
Unable to parse version from string
 
Failed to parse SQLite version parts from string
unknown
Enter a valid SQLite version number
major version
  my $major_version = $sqlite->major_version;
Returns the SQLite major version number. App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite parses the version number from the system call "`sqlite -version`" or retrieves it from DBD::SQLite. For example, if "version()" returns "3.0.8", then this method returns "3".
Events:
info
Executing `sqlite -version`
error
Failed to find SQLite version with `sqlite -version`
 
Failed to retrieve SQLite version from DBD::SQLite
 
Unable to parse name from string
 
Unable to parse version from string
 
Failed to parse SQLite version parts from string
unknown
Enter a valid SQLite version number
minor version
  my $minor_version = $sqlite->minor_version;
Returns the SQLite minor version number. App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite parses the version number from the system call "`sqlite -version`" or retrieves it from DBD::SQLite. For example, if "version()" returns "3.0.8", then this method returns "0".
Events:
info
Executing `sqlite -version`
error
Failed to find SQLite version with `sqlite -version`
 
Failed to retrieve SQLite version from DBD::SQLite
 
Unable to parse name from string
 
Unable to parse version from string
 
Failed to parse SQLite version parts from string
unknown
Enter a valid SQLite version number
patch version
  my $patch_version = $sqlite->patch_version;
Returns the SQLite patch version number. App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite parses the version number from the system call "`sqlite -version`" or retrieves it from DBD::SQLite. For example, if "version()" returns "3.0.8", then this method returns "8".
Events:
info
Executing `sqlite -version`
error
Failed to find SQLite version with `sqlite -version`
 
Failed to retrieve SQLite version from DBD::SQLite
 
Unable to parse name from string
 
Unable to parse version from string
 
Failed to parse SQLite version parts from string
unknown
Enter a valid SQLite version number
executable
  my $executable = $sqlite->executable;
Returns the path to the SQLite executable, usually sqlite3 or sqlite, which will be defined by one of the names returned by"search_exe_names()". The executable is searched for in "new()", so there are no events for this method.
bin_dir
  my $bin_dir = $sqlite->bin_dir;
Returns the SQLite binary directory path. App::Info::RDBMS::SQLite simply retrieves it as the directory part of the path to the SQLite executable.
lib_dir
  my $lib_dir = $expat->lib_dir;
Returns the directory path in which an SQLite library was found. The directory path will be one of the values returned by "search_lib_dirs()", where a file with a name as returned by "search_lib_names()" was found. No search is performed if SQLite is not installed or if only DBD::SQLite is installed.
Events:
info
Searching for shared object library directory
error
Cannot find shared object library directory
unknown
Enter a valid Expat shared object library directory
so_lib_dir
  my $so_lib_dir = $expat->so_lib_dir;
Returns the directory path in which an SQLite shared object library was found. The directory path will be one of the values returned by "search_lib_dirs()", where a file with a name as returned by "search_so_lib_names()" was found. No search is performed if SQLite is not installed or if only DBD::SQLite is installed.
Events:
info
Searching for shared object library directory
error
Cannot find shared object library directory
unknown
Enter a valid Expat shared object library directory
inc_dir
  my $inc_dir = $sqlite->inc_dir;
Returns the directory path in which an SQLite include file was found. The directory path will be one of the values returned by "search_inc_dirs()", where a file with a name as returned by "search_inc_names()" was found. No search is performed if SQLite is not installed or if only DBD::SQLite is installed.
Events:
info
Searching for include directory
error
Cannot find include directory
unknown
Enter a valid SQLite include directory
home_url
  my $home_url = $pg->home_url;
Returns the PostgreSQL home page URL.
download_url
  my $download_url = $pg->download_url;
Returns the PostgreSQL download URL.
search_exe_names
  my @search_exe_names = $sqlite->search_exe_names;
Returns a list of possible names for the SQLite executable. The names are sqlite3 and sqlite by default (sqlite3.exe and sqlite.exe on Win32).
search_bin_dirs
  my @search_bin_dirs = $sqlite->search_bin_dirs;
Returns a list of possible directories in which to search an executable. Used by the "new()" constructor to find an executable to execute and collect application info. The found directory will also be returned by the "bin_dir" method.
search_lib_names
  my @seach_lib_names = $self->search_lib_nams
Returns a list of possible names for library files. Used by "lib_dir()" to search for library files. By default, the list is:
