NAME

DBIx::DataSource - Database-independant create and drop functions

SYNOPSIS

  use DBIx::DataSource qw( create_database drop_database );
  create_database( $data_source, $username, $password )
    or warn $DBIx::DataSource::errstr;
  drop_database( $data_source, $username, $password )
    or warn $DBIx::DataSource::errstr;

DESCRIPTION

This module implements create_database and drop_database functions for databases. It aims to provide a common interface to database creation and deletion regardless of the actual database being used.
Currently supported databases are MySQL and PostgreSQL. Assistance adding support for other databases is welcomed and relatively simple - see DBIx::DataSource::Driver.

FUNCTIONS

create_database DATA_SOURCE USERNAME PASSWORD
Create the database specified by the given DBI data source.
drop_database DATA_SOURCE
Drop the database specified by the given DBI data source.
