- Subject: SQL syntax in Lua?

I would like to, hmmm, use some SQL like syntax in Lua and I was
wondering if anyone had any thoughts on such endeavor?
My current thinking is to chain function calls which mimic SQL
constructs. Something along these lines:
DB:Select( 'name' ):
From( aSource ):
Where( 'name', 'like', '%joe%' ):
Where( 'city', '=', 'NYC' ):
Order( 'name' )()
Or perhaps wrap the above in a function call which would execute in a
custom environment (providing additional substitution magic along the
local aStatement = function()
Select( name )
From( aSource )
Where( name, like, '%joe%' )
Where( city, eq, 'NYC' )
Order( name )
DB:run( aStatement )
Any thoughts on such constructs?
Thanks for any insights!
