takes an xBase file and sends queries to an MySQL server to insert it
into an MySQL table.
dumps a MySQL table to a dbf file.
Produce some status output.
Even more verbose: produce a progress report.
Translate all field names in the xBase file to lowercase.
Translate all text in the xBase file to uppercase.
Translate all text in the xBase file to lowercase.
Allow NULL fields: 'NOT NULL' will be not added in table creation
List fields to insert into MySQL database. Primary use is to ease
import of complex dbf files where we want only few fields. NOTE:
is processed before substitution
so you have to use dbf field names here.
Specify file for CHAR fields conversion. File format is:
1st line: number of characters to convert (number of lines).
Further lines: <char_to_convert> <char_after_conversion>.
Takes a list of field name/new field name pairs. Primary use is to
avoid conflicts between field names and MySQL reserved keywords. When
the new field name is empty, the field is skipped in both the CREATE
clause and the INSERT clauses, i.e. it will not be present in the MySQL
table. For example:
List fields to be indexed. MySQL field names should be used here.
Select the database to insert into. Default is 'test'.
Select the table to insert into. Default is 'test'.
Create table if one doesn't exist already. If the table already exists,
drop it and build a new one. The default is to insert all data into the
named table. If
is specified, no records will be inserted.
Select the primary key. You have to give the exact field name.
Select the host to insert into. Untested.
Fixed length records. (By default CHAR is saved as VARCHAR.)
"Quick" mode. Inserts data via temporary file using 'LOAD DATA INFILE'
MySQL statement. This increased insertion speed on my PC 2-2.5 times.
Also note that during whole 'LOAD DATA' affected table is locked.
Specify custom query to use.
Trim trailing and leading whitespace from CHAR type fields data.
Start each table with _rec and _timestamp fields.
Specify password on the MySQL server.
Specify user on the MySQL server.
can't write MEMO files at this time.
Possibly incorrect field lengths for REAL numbers.
