NAME
       AnyData::Format::Pipe - tiedhash & DBI/SQL access to Pipe delimited
       files

SYNOPSIS
        use AnyData;
        my $table = adHash( 'Pipe', $filename,'r',$flags );
        while (my $row = each %$table) {
            print $row->{name},"\n" if $row->{country} =~ /us|mx|ca/;
        }
        # ... other tied hash operations

        OR

         use DBI
        my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:AnyData:');
        $dbh->func('table1','Pipe', $filename,$flags,'ad_catalog');
        my $hits = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
            SELECT name FROM table1 WHERE country = 'us'
        });
        # ... other DBI/SQL operations

DESCRIPTION
       This is a plug-in format parser for the AnyData and DBD::AnyData
       modules. It will read column names from the first row of the file, or
       accept names passed by the user.  In addition to column names, the user
       may set other options as follows:

         col_names   : a pipe separated list of column names

       If you are using this with DBD::AnyData, put ad_ in front of the flags,
       e.g.  ad_eol.

       Please refer to the documentation for AnyData.pm and DBD::AnyData.pm
       for further details.
