I figured that would be the case but I really needed to make sure. The
file is huge but judicious use of head, emacs, and cat should do the job
just fine without having to write something.
One other question concerns these lines:
CREATE DATABASE `db169254900`;
I can just remove the CREATE DATABASE line and change the USE line to
reflect the name of the current db, right?
Thanks for your help. My partner will be rather happy to have her wiki
