SQLite::Work::Mail(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation SQLite::Work::Mail(3)
 

SQLite::Work::Mail - send mail with data from an SQLite table.

version 0.1601

    use SQLite::Work::Mail;
    my $obj = SQLite::Work::Mail->new(%args);
    $obj->send_mail(%args);

This module is an expansion of SQLite::Work used for sending email populated by row(s) from a table in an SQLite database.

my $obj = SQLite::Work::Mail->new(
database=>$database_file,
report_template=>$report_template,
default_format=>{ 'episodes' => { 'title'=>'title', 'series_title'=>'title', } },
},
);
Make a new report object.
Takes the same arguments as SQLite::Work:: new().

$obj-> send_email();
    $rep->send_email(
        table=>$table,
        where=>\%where,
        not_where=>\%not_where,
        subject=>'My Mail',
        email_col=>$email_col,
        email_address=>\@addresses,
        mailer=>$mailer,
        sort_by=>\@sort_by,
        sort_reversed=>\%sort_reversed,
        show=>\@show,
        limit=>$limit,
        page=>$page,
        row_template=>$row_template,
    );
Select data from a table in the database, and send each row as a separate email.
Arguments are as follows (in alphabetical order):
email_address
An array of email addresses to send the email to. If this is given, this will send an email for each matching row, to each address in the array. Useful for broadcast mailing.
Give either this option or the 'email_col' option.
email_col
The name of the column to take email addresses from. If this is given, then each row is sent to the email address value in that column for that row. Useful for individual notification.
Give either this option or the 'email_address' option.
limit
The maximum number of rows to display per page. If this is zero, then all rows are displayed in one page.
mailer
The name of the mailing program to use. Allowable values are 'mutt', sendmail, mail, and elm.
not_where
A hash containing the column names where the selection criteria in where should be negated.
page
Select which page to generate, if limit is not zero.
row_template
The template for each row. This uses the same format as for headers. If none is given, then a default row_template will be generated, depending on which columns are going to be shown (see show).
Therefore it is important that if one provides a row_template, that it matches the current layout.
The format is as follows:
{$colname}
A variable; will display the value of the column, or nothing if that value is empty.
{?colname stuff [$colname] more stuff}
A conditional. If the value of 'colname' is not empty, this will display "stuff value-of-column more stuff"; otherwise it displays nothing.
    {?col1 stuff [$col1] thing [$col2]}
    
This would use both the values of col1 and col2 if col1 is not empty.
{?colname stuff [$colname] more stuff!!other stuff}
A conditional with "else". If the value of 'colname' is not empty, this will display "stuff value-of-column more stuff"; otherwise it displays "other stuff".
This version can likewise use multiple columns in its display parts.
    {?col1 stuff [$col1] thing [$col2]!![$col3]}
    
show
An array of columns to select; also the order in which they should be shown when a row_template has not been given.
sort_by
An array of column names by which the result should be sorted.
sort_reversed
A hash of column names where the sorting given in sort_by should be reversed.
subject
A template for the Subject: line of the emails.
table
The table to report on. (required)
where
A hash containing selection criteria. The keys are the column names and the values are strings suitable for using in a LIKE condition; that is, '%' is a multi-character wildcard, and '_' is a single-character wildcard. All the conditions will be ANDed together.
Yes, this is limited and doesn't use the full power of SQL, but it's useful enough for most purposes.

    CGI
    Test::More

To install this module, run the following commands:
    perl Build.PL
    ./Build
    ./Build test
    ./Build install
Or, if you're on a platform (like DOS or Windows) that doesn't like the "./" notation, you can do this:
   perl Build.PL
   perl Build
   perl Build test
   perl Build install
In order to install somewhere other than the default, such as in a directory under your home directory, like "/home/fred/perl" go
   perl Build.PL --install_base /home/fred/perl
as the first step instead.
This will install the files underneath /home/fred/perl.
You will then need to make sure that you alter the PERL5LIB variable to find the modules, and the PATH variable to find the script.
Therefore you will need to change: your path, to include /home/fred/perl/script (where the script will be)
        PATH=/home/fred/perl/script:${PATH}
the PERL5LIB variable to add /home/fred/perl/lib
        PERL5LIB=/home/fred/perl/lib:${PERL5LIB}

perl(1).
