Any software to convert text files into SQL database automatically??

I'm looking for a C++ script or any 3rd party software that converts delimited text files into a MySQL database, preferably to run as a scheduled service or daemon. I would like it to map out the file columns to several tables (a web interface would be nice too). Does anybody know of anything like this?

Perl fits the best in your situation. You can write a very simple
perl script to do the job. Perl can handle regular expressions
and database connections. If you show me your data,
I can write a script for you.

MySQL does that natively:

LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE '/filename.xxx'
INTO TABLE tablename
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
LINES TERMINATED BY '\n'
(field1, filed2, field3);

or using the bundled mysqlimport utility:
mysqlimport -L -hHOSTNAME -uUSER -pPASSWORD DATABASE TEXTFILE
