DBOW is a database compiler-compiler or front-end. It takes table definitions in a meta language and prepares C, C++, PHP, Perl (etc) functions for manipulating the database. It will also produce SQL table data for MySQL.

DBOW allows a user to define a database table in a meta-language and produce SQL for generating the table. It also provides C, C++, PHP, Perl functions or methods for manipulating the table, such as insert/delete/search/update.

The system is used to remove the grunt-work of writing class libraries or access functions for database tables and having to update several different source files if the SQL table format should change. The resultant code provides a language-native mechanism for manipulating the database.

Currently it supports C, C++, SQL and PHP (with Perl under way). It will be extended to support other languages and database constructs as required. It currently compiles/runs on FreeBSD/Linux. It doesn't require any other libraries or elements except YACC/Bison.

What's New in This Release:
Perl functionality is now included with the base release.
Some minor bugfixes were made.
