Creating a magento extension - how to ship sql table creation?
I am creating a custom module for magento and as part of it, I need to create a few tables. I have observed that in core magento directories, the SQL table creation happens through SQL installer files in directory /app/code/core/<module>/sql/.
But am unable to see how this should be created for a custom extension and how it will work will installing the extension.
