This Project is intended to continue a nice hack `abandonned' by his original author (Maarten Boekhol (firstname.lastname@example.org): dbf2mysql.
When I first used the package, I needed to
upload dbf files to a running MySQL db, since it was not possible to
do so without taking mysqld down and restarting it with --sg, I added
-P (to grab password); -U (to grab the usrname) and got rid of
mktemp() to the saffest mkstemp().
I tried to contact the author and one of the packagers I found in one 1.10d rpm release (I don't remember his name) but without success.
If anyone knows one of the authors/contributors, please feed the url to him/her so I could lend the project back to the owner. If I keep without any news from her/him/them, I will still keep all the credits he/she/they hardly owned by writting this usefull code, specially for the guys who lives in developping countries and are still using Xbase format alot! Thanks Maarten!
