I see you're doing a bit of Win32 and mingw hacking. I have a patch for
defncopy you might like to use?
I use our defncopy at work -- as patched -- but I haven't committed it to
CVS because it was a quick hack, much too nasty for general consumption.
I don't have time to putz with Win32 FreeTDS stuff at work, and at home I
don't have a Win32 machine (or much energy for that side of things). But
if you or someone else would like to make defncopy work out of the box on
Win32, I think that would make a fine Christmas present.
One thing that isn't obvious about the problem domain: the stored
procedure text in syscomments holds some surprises. Some utilities -- I
think Microsoft's Query Analyzer, but I haven't looked into it carefully
-- use 0xOD as the line terminator. Not 0D0A, not just 0A, but a plain
0D. When you write that via fopen "w", you get ODODOA. Load that back
into the server, and the next time it's extracted in Query Analyzer,
everything appears double-spaced. Oh, the joys!
Solve this locally, I put the SQL text though Perl (what else?):
| perl -pe"s/\r+\n/\n/g; s/\r+/ /g;"
which works for me but it would be nice to solve correctly in defncopy.
BTW, I think I solved the bcp thing once and for all. The offset table
wasn't just hard to read, it was wrong in the presence NULLs. More soon.
