mdb-parsecsv(1) Executable programs or shell commands mdb-parsecsv(1)

NAME

mdb-parsecsv - Convert CSV table dump into C file.

SYNOPSIS

mdb-parsecsv file

DESCRIPTION

mdb-parsecsv is a utility program distributed with MDB Tools.

mdb-parsecsv takes a CSV file representing a database table, and converts it into a C array.

NOTES

If the first argument does not exist as a file, mdb-parsecsv will look for the same filename with '.txt' appended.

The file extension is stripped, and the output written to the base name plus a '.c' extension.

ENVIRONMENT

MDB_JET3_CHARSET
Defines the charset of the input JET3 (access 97) file. Default is CP1252. See iconv(1).
MDBICONV
Defines the output charset to use for the SQL file. Default is UTF-8. mdbtools must have been compiled with iconv.
MDBOPTS
semi-column separated list of options:
  • use_index
  • no_memo
  • debug_like
  • debug_write
  • debug_usage
  • debug_ole
  • debug_row
  • debug_props
  • debug_all is a shortcut for all debug_* options

FUTURE DIRECTIONS

mdb-parsecsv 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.
