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 -?
