Load a csv file into a database

Project description

This is a small utility to load CSV files into a database.

The utility gets the names of the columns from the first row of the CSV file.

I wrote this utility because I was tired of doing always small scripts for
doing this kind os loads.

By now the utility suport MySQL, PostgresSQL and sqlite, but can be used with
other SQL databases using the utility to generate the SQL statements and sending
them to the database.

Usage: loadcsv [options] filename.csv
If no database provided, display SQL to stdout

-h, --help show this help message and exit
-D DRIVER, --driver=DRIVER
database driver mysql, pgsql, sqlite
database server hostname,defaults to localhost
-d DBNAME, --dbname=DBNAME
database name (filename on sqlite)
-u USER, --user=USER database username
-p PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD
database password
-P PORT, --port=PORT database port
-t TABLE, --table=TABLE
database table to load
--test run text, do no commit to the database
CSV file field delimiter, by default semi-colon
