NAME
       dbf2sql	-  Insert  xBase-style	.dbf-files  into  a Post-
       greSQL-table

SYNOPSIS
       "dbf2pg [options] dbf-file"
       Options:
       [-v[v]] [-f] [-u | -l] [-c | -D] [-d database] [-t  table]
       [-h   host]   [-s  oldname=[newname][,oldname=[newname]]]  [-b
       start] [-e end] [-W] [-U username]  [-B	transaction_size]
       [-F charset_from [-T charset_to]]


DESCRIPTION
       This  manual  page documents the program dbf2pg.  It takes
       an xBase-style .dbf-file, and inserts it into  the  speci-
       fied database and table.

   OPTIONS
       -v     Display some status-messages.

       -vv    Also display progress.

       -f     Convert  all field-names from the .dbf-file to low-
	      ercase.

       -u     Convert the contents of all fields to uppercase.

       -l     Convert the contents of all fields to lowercase.

       -c     Create the table specified with -t.  If this  table
	      already exists, first DROP it.

       -D     Delete the contents of the table specified with -t.
	      Note that this table has to  exists.  An	error  is
	      returned if this is not the case.

       -W     Ask for password.

       -d database
	      Specify  the  database to use. An error is returned
	      if  this	database  does	not  exists.  Default  is
	      "test".

       -t table
	      Specify  the  table  to  insert  in.  An	error  is
	      returned if this table does not exists. Default  is
	      "test".

       -h host
	      Specify  the  host  to which to connect. Default is
	      "localhost".

       -s oldname=[newname][,oldname=[newname]]
	      Change the name of a field from oldname to newname.
	      This  is	mainly	used to avoid using reserved SQL-
	      keywords.  When the new fieldname is empty, the field
	      is skipped in both the CREATE-clause and the
	      INSERT-clauses, in common words: it will not be present
	      in the SQL-table.
		  Example:
	      -s SELECT=SEL,remark=,COMMIT=doit
	      This is done  before  the  -f  operator  has  taken
	      effect!

       -b start
	      Specify  the  first record-number in the xBase-file
	      we will insert.

       -e end Specify the last record-number in the xBase-file we
	      will insert.

       -B transaction_size
	      Specify  the  number  of	records  per transaction,
	      default is all records.

       -U username
	      Log as the specified user in the database.

       -F charset_from
	      If specified, it converts the data from the  speci-
	      fied charset. Example:
	      -F IBM437
	      Consult  your  system documentation to see the con-
	      versions available.  This requires iconv to be enabled
              in the compile.

       -T charset_to
	      Together with -F charset_from  ,	it  converts  the
	      data   to   the	specified   charset.  Default  is
	      "ISO-8859-1".  This requires iconv to be enabled
              in the compile.

ENVIRONMENT
       This program is affected by the	environment-variables  as
       used  by  "PostgresSQL."   See  the documentation of Post-
       gresSQL for more info.  This program can optionally use iconv 
       character set conversion routines.

BUGS
       Fields larger than 8192 characters are not  supported  and
       could break the program.
       Some  charset  convertions  could  cause  the output to be
       larger than the input and could break the program.
