  2. Re: Accessing Pervasive and MySQL datafiles in one app

    I'm old school (REALLY OLD school) and spend happy hours reducing record sizes by a character, just because. I recall mainframe disks being measured in Kb and only used for loading what passed for an...
  3. Re: Accessing Pervasive and MySQL datafiles in one app

    Ah, there's the rub. 6Gb. We are 90Gb including various junk and snapshots, so say 60-70Gb of production data. I still fancy a crack at this though.
