Execute MySQL dump on postgres database (special character cleanup)

I’ve had to dump out data from MySQL Db on various occasions and import into postgres. There are some special characters that are not supported by postgres versions before 9.0. Therefore – this special character handling is required on the mysql dump file before importing the data into postgres. Execute the following from shell:

sed -i "s/\\\'/\'\'/g" *.sql
