       bsqlodbc - batch SQL script processor using ODBC

       bsqlodbc [-U username] [-P password] [-S server] [-D database]
       [-i input_file] [-o output_file] [-e error_file]
       [-t field_term] [-qv]

       bsqlodbc is a utility program distributed with FreeTDS.

       bsqlodbc  is  a  non-interactive equivalent of the "isql" utility programs distributed by Sybase and Microsoft.
       Like them, bsqlodbc uses the command "go" on a line by itself as a separator between batches.  The  last  batch
       need not be followed by "go".

       bsqlodbc  makes  use  of  the ODBC API provided by FreeTDS. This API is of course also available to application

       -U username
              Database server login name.

       -P password
              Database server password.

       -S server
              Database server to which to connect.

       -D database
              Database to use.

       -i input_file
              Name of script file, containing SQL.

       -o output_file
              Name of output file, holding result data.

       -e error_file
              Name of file for errors.

       -t field_term
              Specifies the field terminator. Default is two spaces ('   ').   Recognized  escape  sequences  are  tab
              ('\t'), carriage return ('\r'), newline ('\n'), and backslash ('\\').

       -h     Print column headers with the data to the same file.

       -q     Do not print column metadata, return status, or rowcount. Overrides -h.

       -v     Verbose  mode,  for more information about the ODBC interaction.  This also reports the result set meta-
              data, including and return code. All verbose data are written to standard error (or -e), so  as  not  to
              interfere with the data stream.

       bsqlodbc  is  a  filter; it reads from standard input, writes to standard output, and writes errors to standard
       error. The -i, -o, and -e options override these, of course.

       bsqlodbc exits 0 on success, and >0 if the server cannot process the query.

       bsqlodbc first appeared in FreeTDS 0.65.
