BeauSQL -- SQL beautifier

Download: binaries, sources

The purpose is to make SQL traces code more structured and core readable.

This tool consists of two parts:

  • DLL, which is written in Haskell - a very interesting functional programming language, and it do actual work of parsing and pretty printing

  • Small class in Ax which is a thin wrapper for the DLL and button to place in SQL trace form.

This is the first version, it is very experimantal and tested under Ax 3 only.

PS. Some code was stealed from cs4 tool for BAAN
