in reply to SQL function from DBIC

See the "Arbitrary SQL through a custom ResultSource" section in DBIx::Class::Manual::Cookbook

Also, I think (untested, but appears so from grepping distro) that you can do:
my $dbh = $myobj->db_Main; use Data::Dumper; print Dumper $dbh->selectall_arrayref( 'select enum_range(typename); +', {Slice=>{}}, () );

    If you are going to dig in and do something with a database handle directly, the recommended way is:

    use Data::Dumper; $schema->storage->dbh_do( sub { my ( $storage, $dbh ) = @_; print Dumper $dbh->selectall_arrayref( 'select enum_range(typename);', { slice => {} } ); } );

    The dbh_do method (documented in DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI) gives you the benefit of things like automatic reconnection to the database if your connection has timed out or the server has been restarted.

    Also, db_Main is from Class::DBI, not DBIx::Class, although there is a CDBICompat component that will make the latter work mostly like the former (though in the long run you will be better off by just learning the DBIx::Class way, rather than using CDBICompat).
    We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!
