There are two different ways to make queries. The simplest way to make a query is to use [Database_Query], via [DB::query], to manually create queries. These queries are called parameterized statements and allow you to set query parameters which are automatically escaped. The second way to make a query is by building the query using method calls. This is done using the query builder.
[!!] All queries are run using the
execute method, which accepts a [Database] object or instance name. See [Database_Query::execute] for more information.
