NAME         top

       msql2mysql - convert mSQL programs for use with MySQL

SYNOPSIS         top

       msql2mysqlC-source-file ...

DESCRIPTION         top

       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).
