differences between the values allowed for each datatype in dbf's Vs Mysql might shed light?

When the script starts I go through each of the columns and create a base table of a char type, which in MySQL goes holds up to 255 characters. As I go through the data and dump it into a text file I check whether the column can be converted into a number type, and if not check to see if it has the longest string length (if it does update the length). At the end the tables are updated to optimise them for space etc.

I'm preety sure the problem isn't a type one - using the MySQL client it inserts fine. I thought it was maybe a timing issue - Looking at the last line of the shortened data shows that the last few columns are null.. is the script moving faster than it is writing? If so why did

parse_data(); sleep 10; query('LOAD DATA INFILE "'.$temp.'" INTO TABLE '.$table.' FIELDS TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY "\"" LINES TERMINATED BY "\r\n"'); unlink($temp);
not work?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
