loadcsv is a small utility to load CSV files into a database.

The utility gets the names of the columns from the first row of the CSV file.

I wrote this utility because I was tired of doing always small scripts for doing this kind os loads.

By now the utility suport MySQL, PostgresSQL and sqlite, but can be used with other SQL databases using the utility to generate the SQL statements and sending them to the database.

This program is free software licensed under the GNU GPL version 2

Usage: loadcsv [options] filename.csv
If no database provided, display SQL to stdout

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -D DRIVER, --driver=DRIVER
                        database driver mysql, pgsql, sqlite
  -H HOSTNAME, --hostname=HOSTNAME
                        database server hostname,defaults to localhost
  -d DBNAME, --dbname=DBNAME
                        database name (filename on sqlite)
  -u USER, --user=USER  database username
  -p PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD
                        database password
  -P PORT, --port=PORT  database port
  -t TABLE, --table=TABLE
                        database table to load
  --test                run text, do no commit to the database
