Instance Method Details

#[](*args) ⇒ Object

Create an SQL Function with the receiver as the function name and the given arguments.

# File 'lib/sequel/extensions/ruby18_symbol_extensions.rb', line 19

def [](*args)
  Sequel::SQL::Function.new(self, *args)
end

#identifierObject

Returns receiver wrapped in an Sequel::SQL::Identifier. Usually used to prevent splitting the symbol.

:a__b # SQL: "a"."b"
:a__b.identifier # SQL: "a__b"

# File 'lib/sequel/extensions/core_extensions.rb', line 215

def identifier
  Sequel::SQL::Identifier.new(self)
end

#sql_function(*args) ⇒ Object

Returns a Sequel::SQL::Function with this as the function name, and the given arguments. This is aliased as Symbol#[] if the RUBY_VERSION is less than 1.9.0. Ruby 1.9 defines Symbol#[], and Sequel doesn't override methods defined by ruby itself.

:now.sql_function # SQL: now()
:sum.sql_function(:a) # SQL: sum(a)
:concat.sql_function(:a, :b) # SQL: concat(a, b)
