PySQLdb is a SQL middleware layer for programmers.

it provides functions and classes that help programmers
construct SQL queries, and access SQL databases.

presently supported are MySQL (via andy dustman's python-mysqldb)
and MS-SQL 2000 (via the MS-SQL 2000 XML interface using the rather
stupidly named pyxsqmll package at http://sf.net/projects/pyxsqmll).

after writing four SQL database applications in python and
looking for the fifth, it gets _real_ boring to mash out 15,000
lines of code each time.


alongside pysqldb is two programs, pysqlgen and pysqlhtmlgen,
which auto-generate code compatible with pysqldb - DIRECTLY
from a mysql dump file.

it's a bit clunky but it gives you a massive head-start on
developing your python SQL application: if you already have
your SQL file designed, pysqlgen cuts your development time
down from days to minutes.

if you don't like the style of the code so generated, it's
a simple enough job to hack the pysqlgen principle so it
generates python code that you love.

pysqldb and pysqlgen are inspired by Custom, an e-commerce
solution written entirely in Python.
