Hello world,

I'm building a program that will convert out current database (foxpro 
tables with encrypted content) to postgresql. The program will read 
each .DBF file and create SQL statements in a textfile that I can feed 
into postgresql with 'dos2unix; pgsql -f statements.sql'.

The database is something like 500Mb on disk and testruns have showed 
that the files containing the SQL statements will be larger than that. 
I can choose to create a lot of relatively small .SQL files, or create 
one huge one. Any recommendations? Will 'pgsql -f' choke on a > 500Mb 

TIA for any pointers / help.

Jules Alberts.
