in thread Cross platform database table backup/restore

We are giving the client the option to merge (but not add) some data into the database

We want to take a snapshot of the table premerge, if they discover something is awry (sometimes days and several updates later) we want the premerge data. Some of our clients have 100,000+ records in each of 5-6 tables. Encoding and such isn't an issue, we just support various DB platforms, so I was hoping there was a module that let me do something like a $dbh->backup($mytable_name, $myholding_file); & a $dbh->restore($myholding_file, $mytable_name); (and yes I know if updates have been made we may need to do more, but this would be enough 75% of the time)

    And the export/import to/from CSV or XML or SQL would work, just looking to see if there was a cross platform tool that did this amongst some of the cryptic DBIx module names....
