NAME¶mdb-header - Write header file from an MDB database
DESCRIPTION¶mdb-header is a utility program distributed with MDB Tools.
It will dump the names and types of the tables and columns in an MDB database in a C header format.
It will create three files - types.h and dumptypes.[ch]
- Defines the charset of the input JET3 (access 97) file. Default is CP1252. See iconv(1).
- Defines the output charset. Default is UTF-8. mdbtools must have been compiled with iconv.
- semi-column separated list of options:
- debug_all is a shortcut for all debug_* options
EXIT STATUS¶mdb-header exits with error code 1 if there was anunsupported type.
FUTURE DIRECTIONS¶mdb-header is deprecated. Soon, it will no longer be distributed.
It is the feeling of developers that it is not used, as C code generation is now usually replaced by more generic approaches, including libmdb calls and odbc.
However, should you find this tool useful, drop us a line at https://github.com/mdbtools/mdbtools/issues/197 and we'll consider maintaining it.
