Re: Generating ALTER TABLE code for MySQL

in reply to Generating ALTER TABLE code for MySQL

Version 5.0 of MySQL has:
CREATE TABLE new_tbl LIKE orig_tbl;
Use LIKE to create an empty table based on the definition of another table, including any column attributes and indexes defined in the original table (see ).

Maybe something like that, in combination with a SELECT from the table into the new table, and some table renames, would also be an option?
