NAME
       DBD::Sponge - Create a DBI statement handle from Perl data

SYNOPSIS
         my $sponge = DBI->connect("dbi:Sponge:","","",{ RaiseError => 1 });
         my $sth = $sponge->prepare($statement, {
                 rows => $data,
                 NAME => $names,
                 %attr
             }
         );

DESCRIPTION
       DBD::Sponge is useful for making a Perl data structure accessible through a standard DBI statement handle. This
       may be useful to DBD module authors who need to transform data in this way.

METHODS
       connect()

         my $sponge = DBI->connect("dbi:Sponge:","","",{ RaiseError => 1 });

       Here's a sample syntax for creating a database handle for the Sponge driver.  No username and password are
       needed.

       prepare()

         my $sth = $sponge->prepare($statement, {
                 rows => $data,
                 NAME => $names,
                 %attr
             }
         );

       ?   The $statement here is an arbitrary statement or name you want to provide as identity of your data. If
           you're using DBI::Profile it will appear in the profile data.

           Generally it's expected that you are preparing a statement handle as if a "select" statement happened.

       ?   $data is a reference to the data you are providing, given as an array of arrays.

       ?   $names is a reference an array of column names for the $data you are providing.  The number and order
           should match the number and ordering of the $data columns.

       ?   %attr is a hash of other standard DBI attributes that you might pass to a prepare statement.

           Currently only NAME, TYPE, and PRECISION are supported.

BUGS
       Using this module to prepare INSERT-like statements is not currently documented.
