defncopy - extract procedures and views from a Microsoft server. SYNOPSIS
defncopy [-U username] [-P password] [-S server] [-D database] [-i input_file] [-o output_file] [-v] [owner.]object_name [[owner.]object_name...] DESCRIPTION
defncopy is a utility program distributed with FreeTDS. It replaces a similar program of the same name distributed by Sybase. defncopy reads the text of a stored procedure or view, and writes a script suitable for recreating the procedure or view. For tables, it reads the output of sp_help and constructs a CREATE TABLE statement, complete with CREATE INDEX, too. OBJECTS
owner is optional if you or the database owner is the owner of the procedure/view being copied. object_name is the name of the system object you wish to extract. OPTIONS
-U username database server login name. -P password database server password. -S server database server to which to connect. -D database database to use. Optional if the procedure/view being extracted is in your default database. -i input_file a script to apply to the database. Not currently implemented. -o output_file a file to hold the script, defaults to standard output. -v Show version information and copyright notice. NOTES
defncopy is a filter; it reads from standard input, writes to standard output, and writes errors to standard error. The -i and -o options override these, of course. defncopy makes use of the db-lib API provided by FreeTDS. This API is of course also available to application developers. EXIT STATUS
defncopy exits 0 on success, and >0 if the server cannot process the query. defncopy will report any errors returned by the server, but will continue processing. HISTORY
defncopy first appeared in FreeTDS 0.63. AUTHORS
The defncopy utility was written by James K. Lowden <> BUGS
Works only with Microsoft servers and ancient Sybase servers. Does not create primary keys. Many options are defined by Sybase that this version does not implement. Feel free to correct this situation. In theory, defncopy could apply/produce DDL for any system object, but at present only tables, procedures and views are supported, and only for extraction. doc 13 November 2011 defncopy(1)

datacopy - move table data between two servers SYNOPSIS
datacopy { -t | -a | -c owner } [-b batchsize] [-p packetsize] [-v] [-d] [-S server/username/password/database/table_or_view] [-D server/username/password/database/table] DESCRIPTION
datacopy is a utility distributed with FreeTDS. datacopy will move table data from one server to another without the need for intermediate files. datacopy is much faster and more efficient than is freebcp out/in. datacopy makes use of the db-lib bcp API built into FreeTDS. This API is also available to application developers. datacopy can be used to migrate data between Sybase ASE and SQL Server or vice versa. OPTIONS
-t Truncate target table before loading data. -a Append data to target table. -c owner Create the target table with the same schema as the source table. datacopy will submit a 'create table' command on the target server/database using the specified owner in the command, e.g. CREATE TABLE owner.table (...). -b batchsize The number of rows per batch of data copied. Each batch of data is effectively 'committed' to the database. The default is 1000. -p packetsize The number of bytes, per network packet, sent to and from the servers. Increased packet size can enhance performance. -v Produce verbose output, including diagnostic timings. -d Produce freetds TDSDUMP output. (Serious debug only!) -S server/username/password/database/table_or_view The connection information for the source server and the location/name of the table (or view) to be copied. If not specified, data- copy will prompt the user for the information. -D server/username/password/database/table The connection information for the destination server and the location/name of the target table. If not specified, datacopy will prompt the user for the information. SEE ALSO
