This script will create a picture of your schema. Only the database
driver argument (for SQL::Translator) is required. If no output file
name is given, then image will be printed to STDOUT, so you should
redirect the output into a file.
The default action is to assume the presence of foreign key
relationships defined via REFERENCES or FOREIGN KEY constraints on
the tables. If you are parsing the schema of a file that does not
have these, you will find the natural join options helpful. With
natural joins, like-named fields will be considered foreign keys.
This can prove too permissive, however, as you probably dont want a
field called name to be considered a foreign key, so you could
include it in the skip option, and all fields called name will be
excluded from natural joins. A more efficient method, however, might
be to simply deduce the foreign keys from primary keys to other fields
named the same in other tables. Use the natural-join-pk option
to achieve this.
