Generate SQL from R expressions

Low-level building block for generating SQL from R expressions. Strings are escaped; names become bare SQL identifiers. User infix functions have % stripped.

Keywords
internal
Usage
sql_expr(x, con = sql_current_con())

sql_call2(.fn, ..., con = sql_current_con())

Arguments
x

A quasiquoted expression

con

Connection to use for escaping. Will be set automatically when called from a function translation.

.fn

Function name (as string, call, or symbol)

...

Arguments to function

Details

Using sql_expr() in package will require use of globalVariables() to avoid R CMD check NOTES. This is a small amount of additional pain, which I think is worthwhile because it leads to more readable translation code.

Aliases
  • sql_expr
  • sql_call2
Examples
# NOT RUN {
con <- simulate_dbi() # not necessary when writing translations

sql_expr(f(x + 1), con = con)
sql_expr(f("x", "y"), con = con)
sql_expr(f(x, y), con = con)

x <- ident("x")
sql_expr(f(!!x, y), con = con)

sql_expr(cast("x" %as% DECIMAL), con = con)
sql_expr(round(x) %::% numeric, con = con)

sql_call2("+", quote(x), 1, con = con)
sql_call2("+", "x", 1, con = con)
# }
