in reply to DBI: pipe data to "load data local infile"?

On Linux and certain Unixes, /dev/stdin is a pathname for standard input. You could use two processes connected by a pipe; the first process reads and massages the data and writes it to standard output, and the second process uses "Load data local infile" with /dev/stdin as the filename. 'man stdin' for details. Hope this helps.

    Thanks djp I'll look in to that. That's useful info to know even if I don't use it for this project.
