Fastest way to write a simple script?

I'm trying to decide what language would be best for writing simple scripts.

It's very simple: All I need to do is generate text that I can use for creating .sql files. (I have about 5,000 INSERT lines to write)

So I really need a Windows solution that will allow copy and paste.

(Even better would be able to send my output to a text file!)

FYI - I played around with BASIC about 10 years ago... but that's it. Willing to learn.. but simple is good for now.

Thanks!

    An SQL with 5,000 INSERTs!! Maybe you need to redesign it, like use a loop or something.

    Notepad.exe is great for copy-paste operations.


  • I know that mysql is efficient, but it could it handle that much code in one table?

    you mean your database has 5,000 tables!
