Example of pulling the standard catalyst config into a
"command-line-type-usage" script (works nicely from the scripts/ directory):

use FindBin qw($Bin);
use Path::Class;
use lib dir($Bin, '..', 'lib')->stringify; # cross-platform

# Now that we have the local LIB directory in our @INC path, get the module:
use MyApp::Schema::DB;
use Config::General;

use strict;

# Get info from the config file
my $conf =3D new Config::General( file( $Bin, '..', 'myapp.conf' ) );
my %conf =3D $conf->getall;

my $dbi  =3D $conf{'Model::MyApp'}{connect_info};
my @dbi  =3D map{ $dbi->{$_} } qw/dsn user password/;

# Connect to database
my $schema =3D MyApp::Schema::DB->connect( @dbi );
