I am happy to announce the release of version 2.0 of “Firebird External Table Generator” (ext-table-gen for short). (It was released back in September, but I forgot to put up a post on my own website.)
“Firebird External Table Generator” is a commandline tool to transform CSV files to Firebird external table files (a binary format for external table data).
Compared to version 1.0, a lot of new features have been added:
Support for additional data types:
Integral number types:
Exact numeric types (fixed point):
time (without time zone)
timestamp (without time zone)
Customizing the CSV parser configuration (custom separators, quotes, escapes, etc.)
You can find the 2.0 release at ext-table-gen v2.0.
