SYNOPSIS

bsqlodbc [-hqv] [-U username] [-P password] [-S server] [-D database] [-i input_file] [-o output_file] [-e error_file] [-t field_term] [-V odbc_version]

DESCRIPTION

bsqlodbc is a utility program distributed with FreeTDS.

bsqlodbc is a non-interactive equivalent of the isql’ utility programs distributed by Sybase and Microsoft. Like them, bsqlodbc uses the command go’ on a line by itself as a separator between batches. The last batch need not be followed by go’.

bsqlodbc makes use of the ODBC API provided by FreeTDS. This API is of course also available to application developers.

OPTIONS

-U username
  Database server login name.
-P password
  Database server password.
-S server
  Database server to which to connect.
-D database
  Database to use.
-i input_file
  Name of script file, containing SQL.
-o output_file
  Name of output file, holding result data.
-e error_file
  Name of file for errors.
-t field_term
  Specifies the field terminator. Default is two spaces ( ). Recognized escape sequences are tab ( \t ), carriage return ( \r ), newline ( \n ), and backslash ( \\ ).
-h Print column headers with the data to the same file.
-q Do not print column metadata, return status, or rowcount. Overrides -h .
-v Verbose mode, for more information about the ODBC interaction. This also reports the result set metadata, including and return code. All verbose data are written to standard error (or -e-), so as not to interfere with the data stream.
-V odbc_version
  Specify ODBC version (2 or 3).

NOTES

bsqlodbc is a filter; it reads from standard input, writes to standard output, and writes errors to standard error. The -i , -o , and -e options override these defaults.

EXIT STATUS

bsqlodbc exits 0 on success, and >0 if the server cannot process the query.

HISTORY

bsqlodbc first appeared in FreeTDS 0.65.
