In the meanwhile I found another MySQL command called "LOAD DATA INFILE" that should be
VERY fast compared to INSERT statements. This comes from the MySQL pages:
"When loading a table from a text file, use LOAD DATA INFILE. This is usually 20 times
faster than using INSERT statements."
Of course I can program everything by hand, but I was wondering if there are any plans by
MySQL++ to wrap this up into some easy methods. I can imagine that by writing an SSQLS
collection to a temporary file and using it in "LOAD DATA INFILE" could outperform any
(binary) bulk-insert by far!
