description

dbi is a command-line utility for accessing databases with Perl's DBI module. Connection parameters are specified either from the command-line, or from a configuration file (via MLF::Profile::DBI). The query can be specified either on the command-line, or loaded from a file. For queries that return data (select, mostly) it displays the results in a simple table. It also includes a simple parser for processing a series of queries separated by semicolons.

See dbi --help for further documentation and help with switches.
