DBI database connector for MonetDB

Share:

Description

MonetDB.R creates a new DBI driver that can be used to connect and interact with MonetDB.

Usage

1

Details

The MonetDB.R function creates the R object which can be used to a call dbConnect which actually creates the connection. Since it has no parameters, it is most commonly used inline with the dbConnect call.

This package aims to provide a reasonably complete implementation of the DBI. A number of additional methods are provided: dbSendUpdate for database-altering statements, dbSendUpdateAsync for cleanup operations and monetdb.read.csv for database CSV import.

Value

Returns a driver object that can be used in calls to dbConnect.
