[postgis-users] insert .sql using script

I would just write a shell script, php script, perl script whatever
script with a for loop in it that pauses and runs the same insert

You don't really need an sql file for any of those

a shell using psql can take an SQL statement with the -c switch and perl
php etc already have drivers for postgresql.

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the reply..
The reason why i want to do this is because i want to simulate real-time
data from gps collected table..
I have a gps record table, and i want to insert the record into the
every ten seconds
