c1sc0 Posted November 7, 2002 Share Posted November 7, 2002 Hi, I need to do a scheduled import into the MySQL database, about every hour or so. ? 6000 records (products + clients). I wrote a simple routine that dumps the data from the source data server (4D - www.4d.com) into flat-text files. I see two options: 1) Generate a .sql file from the flat-text with e.g. Perl and import data with the .sql, overwriting all existing data using a scheduled shell/perl script 2) Go fancy and write a Perl script that connects to MySQL directly and inserts/updates the data. Recommendations? Ideas? I'm running OSX Jaguar. Seeya - Cisco Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
