NAME

       msql2mysql - convert mSQL programs for use with MySQL

SYNOPSIS

       msql2mysqlC-source-file ...

DESCRIPTION

       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
           client-prog.c converted

       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).
