{- | Main database handle object.

An 'IConnection' object is created by specific functions in the module for an
individual database.  That is, the connect function -- which creates
this object -- is not standardized through the HDBC interface.

A connection is closed by a call to 'disconnect'.

A call to 'commit' is required to make sure that your changes get committed
to the database.  In other words, HDBC has /no support for autocommit/, which
we consider an outdated notion.
class IConnection conn where
                {- | Disconnect from the remote database.

You do not need to explicitly close an IConnection object, but you may do so if
you so desire.  If you don't, the object will disconnect from the database
in a sane way when it is garbage-collected.  However, a disconnection may
raise an error, so you are encouraged to explicitly call 'disconnect'.  Also,
garbage collection may not run when the program terminates, and some databases
really like an explicit disconnect.

So, bottom line is, you're best off calling 'disconnect' directly, but the
world won't end if you forget.

This function discards any data not committed already.  Database driver
implementators should explicitly call 'rollback' if their databases don't
do this automatically on disconnect.

Bad Things (TM) could happen if you call this while you have 'Statement's 
active.  In more precise language, the results in such situations are undefined
and vary by database.  So don't do it.

                   positional parameters in a later call to 'execute'.

                   Please note that, depending on the database
                   and the driver, errors in your SQL may be raised
                   either here or by 'execute'.  Make sure you
                   handle exceptions both places if necessary. -}
                prepare :: conn -> String -> IO Statement
                {- | Create a new 'Connection' object, pointed at the same
                   server as this object is.  This will generally establish
                   a separate physical connection.

                   When you wish to establish multiple connections to a single
                   server, the correct way to do so is to establish the
                   first connection with the driver-specific connection
                   function, and then clone it for each additional connection.
                   This can be important when a database doesn't provide
                   much thread support itself, and the HDBC driver module
                   must serialize access to a particular database.

                   This can also be a handy utility function whenever you
                   need a separate connection to whatever database you are
                   connected to already. -}

                   of the Cabal package name.  For instance, \"sqlite3\"
                   or \"odbc\".  This is the layer that is bound most
                   tightly to HDBC. -}

                   ODBC library, not the eventual DB client driver. -}

                   to not support transactions entirely.  Please see

{- | Sometimes, it is annoying to use typeclasses with Haskell's type system.
In those situations, you can use a ConnWrapper.  You can create one with:

>let wrapped = ConnWrapper iconn

You can then use this directly, since a ConnWrapper is also an
'IConnection'.  However, you will not be able to use private database
functions on it.

Or, you can use 'withWConn'.
data ConnWrapper = forall conn. IConnection conn => ConnWrapper conn

a function.  Example:

withWConn conn f =
