ODBC Interface

ODBC Interface

PostPosted by blake » Thu Oct 23, 2014 5:06 am

Greetings,

The people at GNU APL added an interface to a couple of SQL databases. This made it trivial to add a component file system and a keyed file system. Having a keyed file system, or at least a component file system, is utterly vital in making APL usable in a business software environment. APL is unusable in many environments without a file system.

I know NARS2000 had some low level access to the file system added some time ago. I looked at it. It is sufficient to create a component file system and/or a keyed file system, but the amount of work would have been quite substantial. That interface is too low level.

If an interface to ODBC, for example, could be added, I think we'd find ourselves in a situation in which finally adding a component file system and keyed file system to NARS2000 would be achievable. Being the author of the keyed file system and component file system for GNU APL, I would love to do the same thing for NARS2000.

Thanks.

This sounds very interesting. Can you point me to some documentation in GNU APL or elsewhere as to the interface so I can implement it?

In spite of its name, it supports PostgreSQL & SQLite. It works real well!
