football-to-sqlite gem - load / read football.txt match datafiles (e.g. English Premier League, German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga, etc.) into a sqlite database

Hello,

    inspired by the datasette
{db,dbf,markdown,geojson,shapefile}-to-sqlite series [1] I have put
together the missing football-to-sqlite [2] tool that - surprise,
surprise - lets you load / read football.txt match datafiles
(e.g. English Premier League, German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga
2020/21, etc.) into a sqlite database.

Usage:

Run this tool against match files in the Football.TXT format like so:

$ football-to-sqlite england.db 2020-21\1-premierleague.txt

or pass in more than one match file:

$ football-to-sqlite england.db 2020-21\1-premierleague.txt \
                                2020-21\2-championship.txt  \
                                2020-21\3-league1.txt       \
                                2020-21\4-league2.txt       \
                                2020-21\5-nationalleague.txt

Note: If the single-file SQLite database (and its tables, views &
indices) do not (yet) exist, they get auto-created on the first run.

Note: You can use `football2sqlite` as an alias / alternate name.

Pipes & Standard Input (STDIN):

You can use any command line tool to download match files and pipe
(via stdin) into this tool like so:

$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openfootball/world-cup/master/2018--russia/cup.txt
> football-to-sqlite worldcup.db

That's it for now. Enjoy the beautiful game with ruby. Cheers. Prost.
