A brief survey of the DBI usability layer modules on the CPAN
...offers methods for pulling out query results in every possible data structure you might prefer, and the methods are named distinctly and memorably, with a natural and consistent scheme for distinguishing between fetching only one row or all of them. It is exactly what I need.
I couldn't agree more. This is exactly why I gave DBIx::Simple a try back in 2003. After some playing around for a few weeks, I started using it in production code. Every single line of database code I've written since then has involved DBIx::Simple. It just feels right, does exactly what I want. Can't ask for me than that.
