SYNOPSIS

DBTablesToTextFiles.pl TableName(s)...

DBTablesToTextFiles.pl [-d, --dbdriver mysql | Oracle | Postgres or Pg] [--dbhost hostname] [--dbname databasename] [--dbpassword password] [--dbusername username] [--exportdatalabels yes | no] [--exportlobs yes | no] [-h, --help] [-m, --mode exportdata | describetable] [-o, --overwrite] [--outdelim comma | tab | semicolon] [-q, --quote yes | no] [-r, --root rootname] [--replacenullstr string] [-w --workingdir dirname] TableName(s)...

DESCRIPTION

Export data from MySQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL database tables into CSV/TSV text files. Or perform describe on all tables and store its output into CSV/TSV text files. A text file is generated for each table.

OPTIONS

-d, --dbdriver mysql | Oracle | Postgres or Pg

Database driver name. Possible values: mysql, Oracle, Postgres or Pg. Default: MySQL or value of environment variable DBI_DRIVER. This script has only been tested with MySQL, Oracle and PostgreSQL drivers.

--dbhost hostname

Database host name. Default: 127.0.0.1 for both MySQL and Oracle. For remote databases, specify complete remote host domain: dbhostname.org or something like it.

--dbname databasename

Database name. Default: mysql for MySQL, postgres for PostgreSQL and none for Oracle. For connecting to local/remote Oracle databases, this value can be left undefined assuming --dbhost is correctly specified.

--dbpassword password

Database user password. Default: none and value of environment variable DBI_PASS is used for connecting to database.

--dbusername username

Database user name. Default: none and value of environment variable DBI_USER is used for connecting to database.

--exportdatalabels yes | no

This option is mode specific and controls exporting of column data labels during exportdata mode. Possible values: yes or no. Default: yes.

--exportlobs yes | no

This option is mode specific and controls exporting of CLOB/BLOB or BYTEA data columns during exportdata mode. Possible values: yes or no. Default: no.

-h, --help

Print this help message.

-m, --mode exportdata | describetable

Data selection criterion from database. Possible values: exportdata or describetable. Default value: exportdata.

-o, --overwrite

Overwrite existing files.

--outdelim comma | tab | semicolon

Output text file delimiter. Possible values: comma, tab, or semicolon Default value: comma.

-q, --quote yes | no

Put quotes around column values in output text file. Possible values: yes or no. Default value: yes.

-r, --root rootname

New file name is generated using the root:<Root>.<Ext>. Default new file file names: <Mode><TableName>.<Ext>. The csv and tsv <Ext> values are used for comma/semicolon, and tab delimited text files respectively.This option is ignored for multiple input table names.

--replacenullstr string

Replace NULL or undefined row values with specified value. Default: none

For importing output text files into MySQL database using "load data local infile '<tablename>.tsv' into table <tablename>" command, use --raplacenullstr "NULL" in conjunction with --exportdatalabels no, --quote no, and --outdelim tab options: it'll generate files for direct import into MySQL assuming tables already exists.

-w --workingdir dirname

Location of working directory. Default: current directory.

EXAMPLES

To export all data in user and user_info tables from a MySQL server running on a local machine using username/password from DBI_USER and DBI_PASS environmental variables, type:

% DBTablesToTextFiles.pl -o user user_info

To describe user and user_info tables in a MySQL server running on a remote machine using explicit username/password and capturing the output into a DescribeTables.csv file, type:

% DBTablesToTextFiles.pl --dbdriver mysql --dbuser <name> --dbpassword <pasword> --dbname mysql --dbhost <mysqlhostname.org> -r DescribeTable -m describetable -o user user_info

To describe table all_tables in Oracle running on a remote machine using explicit username/password and capturing the output into a DescribeAllTable.tsv file, type:

% DBTablesToTextFiles.pl --dbdriver Oracle --dbuser <name> --dbpassword <pasword> --dbhost <oraclehostname.com> -r DescribeAllTable -m describetable --outdelim tab --quote no -o all_tables

To export all data in user and user_info tables from MySQL server running on a local machine using explicit username/password and capturing the data in ExportTables.tsv file with empty values substituted with NULL and no column labels, type:

% DBTablesToTextFiles.pl --dbdriver Oracle --dbuser <name> --dbpassword <pasword> -r ExportTables --outdelim tab --quote no --replacenullstr "\N" -m exportdata --exportlobs no --exportdatalabels no -o user user_info
