25.9.1. msql2mysql — Convert mSQL Programs for Use with MySQL
Initially, the MySQL C API was developed to be very similar
to that for the mSQL database system. Because of this, mSQL
programs often can be converted relatively easily for use
with MySQL by changing the names of the C API functions.
The msql2mysql utility performs the
conversion of mSQL C API function calls to their MySQL
equivalents. msql2mysql converts the
input file in place, so make a copy of the original before
converting it. For example, use
msql2mysql like this:
cp client-prog.c client-prog.c.orig
client-prog.c and make any
post-conversion revisions that may be necessary.
msql2mysql uses the
replace utility to make the function name
substitutions. See Section 8.17, “replace — A String-Replacement Utility”.
