This is a holding area for the read_database package.
By default - the read_database program will allow a connection to a postgres database, if you do not have the libraries to do this
you'll need to edit the Makefile to remove the -DDBIO_POSTGRES and the pgsql entries for the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS.
A Makefile.nopostgres has been added to the archive which can be used for this purpose.
read_db is for pre-v7 informix database
read_db7 is for post v7 databases (the structure of some of the columns changed)
If you have a systables.dat and syscolumns.dat you should be able to
$ read_db -t tabname
If you don't know what tables you have - you can always look in systables eg :
$ read_db -t systables
You can generate standard informix unload files (pipe delimited files) using -U, eg :
$ read_db -U -t sometable
Full usage is available via :
$ read_db -?
