[vox-tech] Export MySQL DB to flat file



Greetings!

Well it is a sad day for in the world of opensource software gaining ground 
over proprietary products... (and in this case all at the taxpayer's expense)

We had a beautiful system for managing about 500 volunteers written in 
PHP/MySQL and running on a linux machine, that was set to be moved to a MacOS 
X box for permenant use... Now it would seem that after some re-shuffling of 
administrative departments this is no longer the case, and they want the 
application re-written in ASP/MS-SQL... needless to say I won't have the 
privilege of participating in this act, but it would seem that before I go 
they want "flat files" of the MySQL DB. Short of writting some code to build 
the files, I was wondering if there is any such tool in the MySQL utils that 
will save something like a CSV file that represents the records in the DB... 
something like mysqldump, but without all of the SQL code mixed with the 
data...

any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
