NAME

DBIx::DBStag::Constraint - recursive structure for representing query constraints

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

A constraint is a recursive structure for representing query constraints;
  AND ---  x=1
    \
     \---- OR   ---  y>2
            \
             \-----  boolfunc(z)
A constraint is either a bool (AND, OR, NOT) with >0 children, or it can be a leaf node representing an atomic constraint
the constraint corresponds to a SQLTemplate option block; eg
  [ name LIKE &name& ]
  [ name => &name& ]
  [ start > &min_start& ]
  [ start => &start& ]
  [ somefunc(&x&) ]
  [ somefunc(&x&, &y&) ]
  [ somefunc(t.col, &x&, &y&) => &z& ]
the constraint consists of an operator (represented by => in the option block). If no => is present, then it is a simple variable binding.
A constraint can consist of multiple variable bindings
