Merge tags - Tag summary for Merge. HTML::Merge - Embedded HTML/SQL/Perl system by Raz Information Systems.


DATABASE TAGS

  • <$RDB='[Database type:]Database name[:Host][,User[,Password]]'>

    Connect to alternative database. Defaults are taken from the configuration file. If two parameters are given in the first token, the database type takes precedence.

    Perdefined databases from merge.conf can be used like this:

    <$RDB='SYSTEM'> for system datatbase If system database (SESSION_DB) is not defined in merge.conf a system wide definition will apply.

    <$RDB='DEFAULT'> for application database

  • <$RS='SQL statement'>

    Perform a non query SQL statement.

  • <$RQ='SELECT SQL statement'>

    Perform a query. First row of result is immediately available. Query can be iterated with <$RLOOP> tags.

  • <$RERUN>

    Reperforms the query.

  • <$RLOOP[.LIMIT=number]>

    </$RLOOP>

    <$REND>

  • <$REMPTY>

    Returns a boolean value of whether the last query yielded an empty set.

  • <$RENUMREQ.iterator variable=value variable>
