I want to know if there are any freeware's available to read and write .sql files. I hava a .sql file with set of insert statements and I need to identify the values that are pushed into table, the table name, the inner query clauses etc., from the sql statement.
After identifying, need to translate and push those changes back to the .sql file. Is there any way to do this with help of parsers rather reading the whole of file line by line.
I did come across few parsers like ZQL, sqljep etc., but could not really solve the issue. Please help..
Thanks in advance.

Is this a one-time use for yourself or part of an application you need to build? Stuff like this is often easier to write yourself in Java assuming the kinds of changes you need to be make can be made with regular expressions and the files you are reading are highly structured. The issue with 'generic' read/write tools is that every database has its own unique flavor of SQL and not all of them exactly match each other even on some basic commands.

Say I have a line like below,
These statements gets repeated in the file consecutively. I need to get the insert column values (like user_id, module_id etc.,) and values that are inserted into the table (like 'LANGUAGE', 'L','system_preferences' etc., ) into any data structure. And also replace the values with translated values in same positions in writing back the values.
