  Description     : PEAR DB modules for PHP

DB is a database abstraction layer providing:
* an OO-style query API
* portability features that make programs written
   for one DBMS work with other DBMS's
* a DSN (data source name) format for specifying
   database servers
* prepare/execute (bind) emulation for databases
   that don't support it natively
* a result object for each query response
* portable error codes
* sequence emulation
* sequential and non-sequential row fetching as
   well as bulk fetching
* formats fetched rows as associative arrays,
   ordered arrays or objects
* row limit support
* transactions support
* table information interface
* DocBook and PHPDoc API documentation

DB layers itself on top of PHP's existing
database extensions. The currently supported
extensions are:
dbase, fbsql, interbase, informix,
msql, mssql, mysql, mysqli,
oci8, odbc, pgsql, sqlite and sybase.
