NAME

SQL::Statement::Function - abstract base class for all function executing terms

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  # this class doesnt have a common constructor, because all derived classes
  # have their special requirements



DESCRIPTION

SQL::Statement::Function is an abstract base class providing the interface for all function executing terms.

INHERITANCE



  SQL::Statement::Function
  ISA SQL::Statement::Term



METHODS

    DESTROY

Destroys the term and undefines the weak reference to the owner as well as the reference to the parameter list.

NAME

SQL::Statement::Function::UserFunc - implements executing a perl subroutine

SYNOPSIS



  # create an user function term with an SQL::Statement object as owner,
  # specifying the function name, the subroutine name (full qualified)
  # and the parameters to the subroutine
  my $term = SQL::Statement::Function::UserFunc->new( $owner, $name, $sub, \@params );
  # access the result of that operation
  $term->value( $eval );



DESCRIPTION

SQL::Statement::Function::UserFunc implements a term which returns the result of the specified subroutine.

INHERITANCE



  SQL::Statement::Function
  ISA SQL::Statement::Term



METHODS

    new

Instantiates a new SQL::Statement::Function::UserFunc instance.

    value

Invokes the given subroutine with the values of the params and return it’s result:



    my @params = map { $_->value($eval); } @{ $self->{PARAMS} };
    return $subpkg->$subname( $self->{OWNER}, @params );



NAME

SQL::Statement::Function::NumericEval - implements numeric evaluation of a term

SYNOPSIS



  # create an user function term with an SQL::Statement object as owner,
  # specifying the expression to evaluate and the parameters to the subroutine
  my $term = SQL::Statement::NumericEval->new( $owner, $expr, \@params );
  # access the result of that operation
  $term->value( $eval );



DESCRIPTION

SQL::Statement::Function::NumericEval implements the numeric evaluation of a term. All parameters are expected to be numeric.

INHERITANCE



  SQL::Statement::Function::NumericEval
  ISA SQL::Statement::Function
    ISA SQL::Statement::Term



METHODS

    new

Instantiates a new SQL::Statement::Function::NumericEval instance. Takes $owner, $expr and \@params as arguments (in specified order).

    value

Returns the result of the evaluated expression.

NAME

SQL::Statement::Function::Trim - implements the built-in trim function support

SYNOPSIS



  # create an trim function term with an SQL::Statement object as owner,
  # specifying the spec, char and the parameters to the subroutine
  my $term = SQL::Statement::Trim->new( $owner, $spec, $char, \@params );
  # access the result of that operation
  $term->value( $eval );



DESCRIPTION

SQL::Statement::Function::Trim implements string trimming.

INHERITANCE



  SQL::Statement::Function::Trim
  ISA SQL::Statement::Function
    ISA SQL::Statement::Term



METHODS

    new

Instantiates a new SQL::Statement::Function::Trim instance. Takes $owner, $spec, $char and \@params as arguments (in specified order).

Meaning of the parameters:
$spec Can be on of ’LEADING’, ’TRAILING’ ’BOTH’. Trims the leading chars, trailing chars or at both ends, respectively.

Defaults to ’BOTH’.

$char The character to trim - defaults to
\@params Expected to be an array with exact 1 element (more aren’t evaluated).

    value

Returns the trimmed value of first parameter argument.

NAME

SQL::Statement::Function::SubString - implements the built-in sub-string function support

SYNOPSIS



  # create an substr function term with an SQL::Statement object as owner,
  # specifying the start and length of the sub string to extract from the
  # first element of \@params
  my $term = SQL::Statement::SubString->new( $owner, $start, $length, \@params );
  # access the result of that operation
  $term->value( $eval );



DESCRIPTION

SQL::Statement::Function::SubString implements a sub-string extraction term.

INHERITANCE



  SQL::Statement::Function::SubString
  ISA SQL::Statement::Function
    ISA SQL::Statement::Term



METHODS

    new

Instantiates a new SQL::Statement::Function::SubString instance. Takes $owner, $start, $length and \@params as arguments (in specified order).

Meaning of the parameters:
$start Specifies the start position to extract the sub-string. This is expected to be a SQL::Statement::Term instance. The first character in a string has the position 1.
$length Specifies the length of the extracted sub-string. This is expected to be a SQL::Statement::Term instance.

If omitted, everything to the end of the string is returned.

\@params Expected to be an array with exact 1 element (more aren’t evaluated).

    value

Returns the extracted sub-string value from first parameter argument.

NAME

SQL::Statement::Function::StrConcat - implements the built-in string concatenation

SYNOPSIS



  # create an substr function term with an SQL::Statement object as owner
  # and \@params to concatenate
  my $term = SQL::Statement::StrConcat->new( $owner, \@params );
  # access the result of that operation
  $term->value( $eval );



DESCRIPTION

SQL::Statement::Function::StrConcat implements a string concatenation term.

INHERITANCE



  SQL::Statement::Function::StrConcat
  ISA SQL::Statement::Function
    ISA SQL::Statement::Term



METHODS

    new

Instantiates a new SQL::Statement::Function::StrConcat instance.

    value

Returns the concatenated string composed of the parameter values.
