Under UNIX, you could do this:
mysql -e "show tables" --skip-column-names -s db_name \
| sed 's/.*/ALTER TABLE & TYPE=MYISAM;/' > junk
That gives you a file of ALTER TABLE commands that you can
feed into mysql to execute (after you check it to make sure
it looks like what you want):
mysql db_name < junk
Does Windows have something like the sed (stream editor)
command you can use?
