Using load data for multiple files
Posted by: Ravishankar Arivazhagan

What I am trying to do now is add a bunch of files from a folder into MYSQL database.
The files are all comma separated (CSV's).
Name of the files are in this format :

filename.general (eg: xyz_1.general)

I used 'Load data infile' command initially and it seemed to work. I wrote a perl script to automate this process but I am getting an error after a few files are processed.(only 200 files out of 516 are getting inserted).
Taking the file name format into consideration i am not sure if i can use 'mysqlimport' command.
All files need to go into a single table. They have the same structure.
Is there a limit to the number of files that can be inserted using load file?
Is it suitable to do it for multiple files?
Is there a better way to do what I am doing?

Pleae help me with this guys!
Thank you in advance!
