update times


No updates. Truncate/load only. BulkCopy preferably.

honey the codewitch wrote:
tables without constraints


Exactly. I'm loading staging tables for the use of others.

honey the codewitch wrote:
you have to scan to the end of a string before you can tell whether you're reading a field or a value node, because the ':' is the only thing you can use to discern that


Well, you have to read to the end of the string/token anyway, and then you can "peek" the next token to see whether or not it's a COLON, no big deal.
Knowing "I'm in an object, therefore this must be a name", or "I'm in an array, therefore this must be a value" is unnecessary complexity.

honey the codewitch wrote:
using carefully constructed regular expressions instead


Frack no. And that would require loading an entire file into memory, wouldn't it?
