Arguments

db

Character of length 1, the name of the tcpl database

drvr

Character of length 1, which database driver to use

tbl

Details

Currently, the tcpl package only supports the "MySQL" and "tcplLite" database drivers.

tcplQuery returns a data.table object with the query results. tcplSendQuery sends a query, but does not fetch any results, and returns 'TRUE' or the error message given by the database.
