Bigtop::Backend::SQL::DB2 - backend to generate sql for DB2 database creation

If your bigtop file looks like this:
    config {
        SQL  DB2 {}
    }
    app App::Name {
    }
and there are table and/or sequence blocks in the app block, this module will make docs/schema.db2 (relative to the build_dir) when you type:
    bigtop app.bigtop SQL
or
    bigtop app.bigtop all
You can feed that file directly to any DB2 command interpreter, once you have created a database (and schema if needed).

This is a Bigtop backend which generates SQL DB2 can understand.

This module defines no keywords. Look in Bigtop::SQL for a list of the keywords you can use in table and sequence blocks.
Note that while DB2 supports sequences, this module does not. Using them is likely to be fatal (at least to your generated SQL).

This module does provide a couple of bits of shorthand (some aren't so short) for the arguments of the is field statement.
    field id {
        is int4, primary_key, auto;
    }
This translates into:
    id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY NOT NULL GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY
    (START WITH 1, INCREMENT BY 1, NO CACHE)
You can also type 'assign_by_sequence' instead of 'auto'. That might aid understanding, if you can type it correctly.
Note that using 'primary_key' instead of the literal 'PRIMARY KEY' is important. It tells the SQL and the Model back ends that this is the primary key, allowing foreign keys to use REFERENCES and many other nice effects.

To keep podcoverage tests happy.
backend_block_keywords
Tells tentmaker that I understand these config section backend block keywords:
    no_gen
    template
    
what_do_you_make
Tells tentmaker what this module makes. Summary: docs/schema.db2.
gen_SQL
Called by Bigtop::Parser to get me to do my thing.
setup_template
Called by Bigtop::Parser so the user can substitute an alternate template for the hard coded one here.
