I'm looking for something that can be pointed at a DB table and can give
the schema for the table back - preferably in the form of an SQL CREATE
TABLE statement but I can live without[*].
DBIx::DBSchema seems to be just the ticket
my $schema = DBIx::DBSchema->new_native($dbh);
my $sql = $schema->table($table)->sql_create_table($dbh);
Except I've been running into a bunch of bugs.
Any other solutions?
Alternatively - what I'm really trying to do is get a unique finger
print for the schema of a database. My current plan is hashing the
CREATE TABLE statement but other methods would be gratefully received.
[*] Of course in MySQL I can do SHOW CREATE TABLE ... but that's not
