      --table                           Table

      [ --man ]                         Prints full man page

      [options passed to mysqlimport]

  Example: 
    cat file | mysqlslurp --database=my_db --table=my_table

DESCRIPTION

mysqlslurp reads from <STDIN> and writes to directly to a MySQL table. Parameters --database and --table are required. Specifying a --tmp directory where the FIFO pipe will be created is optional. All other options are passed to mysqlimport unchanged.

ADVANTAGES

Speed

mysqlslurp wraps mysqlimport, the fastest way to import data into MySQL tables. Especially with the --use-threads option.

Data in Motion

Unlike mysqlimport, mysqlslurp does not require that the data be resident in a file on disk. This is handy in multiple server setups.

Good Defaults

Mostly just works.
