Scripts to convert data-dump to other formats

I was wondering how I can use the data dump to query for answers offline (on a MacOS box)? - I recently saw some people using it with MS SQL setups... but that's more than cumbersome.

Did anybody write a specific app jet, that has got a lower footprint? It's just to issue some queries, because the answers are really time-saving and enhancing my productivity.

See this question and this one for all your datadump conversion needs :) – balpha Apr 16 '10 at 9:43

I had made some time ago a quick Python script to create and import the date into a SQLite3 database from the data dump, but I haven't test it with the last few months data dumps. You'l surely will have to modify the ANATHOMY dictionary to fit the current version.
