Module ddbc.pods implement SELECT support for POD structs (plain old data).

Instead of manual reading fields one by one, it's possible to put result set value to struct fields, and generate select statements automatically.

Sample of easy reading from DB using PODs support:

import ddbc.core;
import ddbc.common;
import ddbc.drivers.sqliteddbc;
import ddbc.pods;
import std.stdio;

// prepare database connectivity
auto ds = new ConnectionPoolDataSourceImpl(new SQLITEDriver(), "ddbctest.sqlite");
auto conn = ds.getConnection();
scope(exit) conn.close();
Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
scope(exit) stmt.close();
// fill database with test data
stmt.executeUpdate("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS user");
stmt.executeUpdate("CREATE TABLE user (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL, flags int null)");
stmt.executeUpdate(`INSERT INTO user (id, name, flags) VALUES (1, "John", 5), (2, "Andrei", 2), (3, "Walter", 2), (4, "Rikki", 3), (5, "Iain", 0), (6, "Robert", 1)`);

// our POD object
struct User {
    long id;
    string name;
    int flags;

writeln("reading all user table rows");
foreach(ref e; stmt.select!User) {
    writeln("id:", e.id, " name:", e.name, " flags:", e.flags);

writeln("reading user table rows with where and order by");
foreach(ref e; stmt.select!User.where("id < 6").orderBy("name desc")) {
    writeln("id:", e.id, " name:", e.name, " flags:", e.flags);

writeln("reading all user table rows, but fetching only id and name (you will see default value 0 in flags field)");
foreach(ref e; stmt.select!(User, "id", "name")) {
    writeln("id:", e.id, " name:", e.name, " flags:", e.flags);
