cldump - Clarion database extractor SYNOPSIS
cldump [options] database.dat DESCRIPTION
cldump extracts the data contained in a Clarion database; Clarion is a Windows IDE similar to Delphi or others, and has its own (simple) database format. cldump can extract the data contained in such a database, and export it to CSV, SQL (including the database schema, keys and indexes) or its own format (this format will give you all the meta information, but isn't easily parsable). A Clarion database consists in a set of files : .DAT files contain the data, .Kxx files contain the key/index data, .MEM files contain the memo entries associated to the data. OPTIONS
-x n, --decrypt n Decrypt an encrypted file. Required argument n indicates the location where the key will be retrieved. Valid values are in the range 1 - 4 inclusive. n = 1 usually works. Decryption happens in-place so KEEP A BACKUP as there is no guarantee the decryption process won't fail. Encrypted files must be decrypted before they can be dumped. Note that only the data file and the memo file are decrypted in this process; key/index files are left untouched as cldump doesn't use them. -d, --dump-active Dump active entries only -D, --dump-data Dump the actual data (active and deleted entries) -m, --dump-meta Dump meta information (no SQL or CSV output format exist for this option) -f c, --field-separator c Set the field separator to character c. Only valid for CSV output (see below). -c, --csv Dump data or schema in CSV format -S, --sql Dump data or schema in SQL format -s, --schema Dump database schema -M, --mysql Use MySQL specific construct (backticks, ...) -n, --no-memo Do not dump memo entries -U[charset], --utf8[=charset] Transcode strings and memos from charset to UTF-8 (charset defaults to ISO8859-1; for the list of supported charsets, see iconv --list) OUTPUT
cldump outputs the data to stdout or stderr depending on the output format selected, the data to extract and the type of the data (data, meta data). BUGS
The SQL output could be improved. Not all the types supported by the Clarion database format are implemented yet (due to lack of test data- bases using these types of data); see the source code for details. Please report bugs to; if possible, please send patches as the set of test databases I have is very limited. AUTHOR

mdb-export - Export data in an MDB database table to CSV format. SYNOPSIS
mdb-export [-H] [-d delimiter] [-R row_delim] [[-Q] | [-q quote [-X escape]]] [-I] [-D format] database table DESCRIPTION
mdb-export is a utility program distributed with MDB Tools. It produces a CSV (comma separated value) output for the given table. Such output is suitable for importation into databases or spread- sheets. OPTIONS
-H Supress header row -Q Don't wrap text-like fields (text, memo, date) in quotes. If not specified text fiels will be surrounded by " (double quote) char- acters. -d Specify an alternative column delimiter If no delimiter is specified, table names will be delimited by a , (comma) character. -R Specify a row delimiter -I INSERT statements (instead of CSV). You must specify the SQL dialect. -D Set the date format (see strftime(3) for details) -q Use to wrap text-like fields. Default is ". -X Use to escape quoted characters within a field. Default is doubling. -N namespace Prefix identifiers with namespace. NOTES
MDB_JET3_CHARSET Defines the charset of the input JET3 (access 97) file. Default is CP1252. See iconv(1). MDBICONV Defines the output charset to use for the SQL file. Default is UTF-8. mdbtools must have been compiled with iconv. MDBOPTS semi-column separated list of options: o use_index o no_memo o debug_like o debug_write o debug_usage o debug_ole o debug_row o debug_props o debug_all is a shortcut for all debug_* options SEE ALSO

mdb-export first appeared in MDB Tools 0.1. AUTHORS
The mdb-export utility was written by Brian Bruns. BUGS
Memo fields are allowed to contain a newline characters, the current program does nothing about this. 0.7 13 July 2013 MDBTools(1)
