This script is part of the SQL Fairy project.  It will try to convert any source file for which it has a grammar into any format for which it has a producer.

If using "show-warnings," be sure to redirect STDERR to a separate file. In bash, you could do this:

    $ sql_translator.pl -f MySQL -t PostgreSQL --show-warnings \
       file.sql 1>out 2>err

You can specify a parser or producer located in any module that Perl knows about, allowing you to easily substitute your own.
