Hi,

Can anyone tell me the difference between a .sql files and a .frm with regards to mysql databases and the tables within? Is it anything to do with running mysql on a linux or windows machine?


Thanks,
Suzy

.frm Table definition format files
.sql  Files are simply ascii files that contain queries.

File  Purpose  
`tbl_name.frm'  Definition (format) file  
`tbl_name.MYD'  Data file  
`tbl_name.MYI'  Index file  

This came from the mysql manual
which can be found at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/
