Description

Initially, the MySQL C API was developed to be very similar to that of the mSQL database system.

Because of this, mSQL programs often can be converted relatively easily for use with MySQL by changing the names of their C API functions.

The msql2mysql utility performs the conversion of mSQL C API function calls to their MySQL equivalents.

Warning: msql2mysql converts the input file in place, so make a copy of the original before converting it.

Example

shell> cp client-prog.c client-prog.c.orig
shell> msql2mysql client-prog.c
client-prog.c converted

After conversion, examine client-prog.c and make any necessary post-conversion revisions.

msql2mysql uses the replace utility to make the function name substitutions.
