       SQL::Translator::Producer::MySQL - MySQL-specific producer for SQL::Translator


       Use via SQL::Translator:

         use SQL::Translator;

         my $t = SQL::Translator->new( parser => '...', producer => 'MySQL', '...' );


       This module will produce text output of the schema suitable for MySQL.  There are still
       some issues to be worked out with syntax differences between MySQL versions 3 and 4 ("SET
       foreign_key_checks," character sets for fields, etc.).


       This producer takes a single optional producer_arg "mysql_version", which provides the
       desired version for the target database. By default MySQL v3 is assumed, and statements
       pertaining to any features introduced in later versions (e.g. CREATE VIEW) are not

       Valid version specifiers for "mysql_version" are listed here

   Table Types
       Normally the tables will be created without any explicit table type given and so will use
       the MySQL default.

       Any tables involved in foreign key constraints automatically get a table type of InnoDB,
       unless this is overridden by setting the "mysql_table_type" extra attribute explicitly on
       the table.

   Extra attributes.
       The producer recognises the following extra attributes on the Schema objects.

           Set the list of allowed values for Enum fields.

       field.binary, field.unsigned, field.zerofill
           Set the MySQL field options of the same name.

       field.renamed_from, table.renamed_from
           Use when producing diffs to indicate that the current table/field has been renamed
           from the old name as given in the attribute value.

           Set the type of the table e.g. 'InnoDB', 'MyISAM'. This will be automatically set for
           tables involved in foreign key constraints if it is not already set explicitly. See
           "Table Types".

           Please note that the "ENGINE" option is the preferred method of specifying the MySQL
           storage engine to use, but this method still works for backwards compatibility.

       table.mysql_charset, table.mysql_collate
           Set the tables default character set and collation order.

       field.mysql_charset, field.mysql_collate
           Set the fields character set and collation order.
