Starting ISQL from command line

I would like to start ISQL (for win95) from a 'run' command line and to
automatically connect to a specified database and then run a specified *.SQL
file. What would this command line look like ?
I know it starts as c:\sqlany50\win32\isql.exe but then I am lost.

Thanks in advance

Command line ISQL
Hi. I want to load command files containing stored procedures via the command line ISQL, but I don't understand the documentation. If I use this syntax: ISQL -b -c "uid=dba;pwd=sql" READ TEST.SP I am first prompted for the password (so I enter "sql"). Then, after a moment, I get this error: CT-LIBRARY error: ct_connect(): network packet layer: internal net library error: Net-Lib protocol driver call to connect two endpoints failed I presume this means I have my connect information wrong, and I can certainly see that there is nothing in my...

ISQL Command Line
I'm migrating an old ASA Schema to a new one. I have stored procs that do 98% of the work. I want a batch file to start isql (I can do this part) and then READ my create proc sql files in, and then execute the newly created procs! I get ISQL running and connected to my DB, but when I try to read in any of my SQL files (with the create proc statements) I get the Stop, Continue, Exit message. If I run through the gui interface (using File|Open and Execute) everything is fine, but I want to be able to repeat this process over and over during the development and testing.phase...

Command line ISQL question
ASA 7.0.4, Win2K I'm executing a set of isql commands from a windows NT .cmd file (like a ..bat file). When I do this, is each statement going to COMMIT as soon as it's done, or might it depend on other factors? Unless I'm missing something (definitely possible), it appears that unless I let the .cmd file run to completion, the statements executed up to the time I kill it are not being COMMITted, and therefore the changes aren't saved into the database. The statements are a series of 5 delete's similar to the following: dbisql -nogui -c "eng=bp_d...

Start a Build From Command Line
I know this is a long shot, but ... Is there a way to start a build from the command line? We're maintaining several applications that are dependent on some common service classes. When those services change, we have to open each application's project painter and manually execute a build. We'd like to put all those dependencies into a batch file, sort of like you'd do with a C/C++ make file. Thanks. Jack Frosch Jack, You need PowerGen from ECrane Computing.

Command line ISQL parameters
I am trying to run a rebuild using the rebuild.bat file on SQL Anywhere 5.0. The reload runs very slow, so I want to make some changes to the way the db is started. Currently the statement is: isql -c "uid=dba;pwd=sql;dbf=%2;dbs=-q" read reload.sql I changed it to: isql -c "uid=dba;pwd=sql;dbf=%2;dbs=-q -c 39M" read reload.sql and the DB still says 2048 bytes of cache. If I run the statement: dbeng50 c:\dummy\dummy.db -c 39M then look at the db engine, it says 39936 cache. Am I entering the parameters wrong on the ISQL statement, or does the dbs ...

Command-line ISQL Question
All: I am writing an app that will be sent to different sites that must do the following: 1. Extract data from a SQL Anywhere 5.5 database to text files. There are approximately source 25 tables involved. 2. Compress these files into a single "zip" file. 3. Send this "zip" file to my site via FTP, MAPI, etc. After an initial dump of all the data, I will want to extract only deltas. I can handle this by outputting a list of deltas to a text file, reading the file and constructing and submitting multiple queries to ISQL. This will result in having to execute t...
