NAME



 AnyData::Format::Fixed - tiedhash & DBI/SQL access to Fixed length data



CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use AnyData;
 my $table = adHash( Fixed, $filename,r,{pattern=>A20 A2} );
 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,Fixed, $filename, {pattern=>A20 A2},ad_catalog);
 my $hits = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
     SELECT name FROM table1 WHERE country = us
 });
 # ... other DBI/SQL operations



DESCRIPTION

This is a parser for fixed length record files. You must specify an unpack pattern listing the widths of the fields e.g. {pattern=>’A3 A7 A20’}. You can either supply the column names or let the module get them for you from the first line of the file. In either case, they should be a comma separated string.

Refer to <http://perldoc.perl.org/functions/pack.html> for the formatting of the pattern.

Please refer to the documentation for AnyData.pm and DBD::AnyData.pm for further details.
