You most probably don't need 13000 lines of C++ to load the UCD and other
files into some SQL database, if you just use the database engine tools that
can load a delimited text file into a table.
So all you need to write is the script to create the schema, and possibly a
small script to possibly command this table load.
Once this is done, you can dump your database into a SQL script file. This
does not even require writing any C++ application, just possibly a small SQL
script that can be reused (a similar SQL script could generate your C/C++
For all that, you won't need more than about 200 lines of scripts, without
even using a C++ compiler/linker.
