MSQL2MYSQL(1) MySQL Database System MSQL2MYSQL(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:
shell> cp client-prog.c client-prog.c.orig
shell> msql2mysql client-prog.c
Then examine 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 replace(1).
