in thread Parsing mysqldump files
SQL::Statement looked great at first, HOWEVER, it doesn't seem to handle the MySQL syntax of putting backquotes around column and table names... so it signals a parsing error. It would be great if there were a MySQL version...
DBIx::MyParse and DBIx::MyParsePP seem to be very low level parsers in that they create huge trees just parsing a simple MySQL INSERT statement and it wasn't/isn't obvious to me how to extract the high level aspects of the MySQL statement constructs from the generated parse hash.
I'm really just trying to parse the array-of-array like structure used by the MySQL INSERT statement to insert multiple rows into a table. It may even be close enough to a perl array-of-arrays to use perl to parse it...
