Data definition language


 
<language, database> (DDL)
 
1. A language enabling the structure and instances of a
database to be defined in a human-, and machine-readable
form.
 
SQL contains DDL commands that can be used either
interactively, or within programming language source code,
to define databases and their components, e.g. CREATE and
DROP.
 
See also Data manipulation language (DML).
 
2. A specification language for databases, based on the
entity-relationship model.  It is used in the Eli
compiler-compiler to manage type definitions.

    Nací en la ciudad de Guadalajara y el idioma inglés aunque no me atrae mucho, considero es necesario solo como una herramienta de comunicación básico. Lo he estudiado en diferentes etapas de mi vida desde chico. Ademas cuento con parientes en Canadá y E. U. A. Quiero mejorar en el inglés por lo menos un 30% más.

    Crazy Indie rock and cats lover, genuine, creative, annoying and lovable! The kind of person you will be always happy with : D I am not a party girl, love the peace of my bedroom, love to read, to draw... It seems kind of boring but I would say I have a different conception of & quot; having fun& quot;... I have it, definitely. Hope to find someone that I can feel related to, start an awesome friendship and be able to help each other to improve language skills. See u then :)
