SQL::Translator::Producer::Dumper - SQL Dumper producer for SQL::Translator


  use SQL::Translator::Producer::Dumper;


    db_user         Database username
    db_password     Database password
    dsn             DSN for DBI
    mysql_loadfile  Create MySQL's LOAD FILE syntax instead of INSERTs
    skip=t1[,t2]    Skip tables in comma-separated list
    skiplike=regex  Skip tables in comma-separated list


This producer creates a Perl script that can connect to a database and dump the data as INSERT statements (a la mysqldump) or as a file suitable for MySQL's LOAD DATA command. If you enable "add-truncate" or specify tables to "skip" (also using the "skiplike" regular expression) then the generated dumper script will leave out those tables. However, these will also be options in the generated dumper, so you can wait to specify these options when you dump your database. The database username, password, and DSN can be hardcoded into the generated script, or part of the DSN can be intuited from the "database" argument.
