Re: ORACLE - PASCAL

Hi Steve,

First you need to know if there is an interface between Pascal and Oracle RDBMS.

For example: between Microsoft Access/VBA and Oracle you must use ODBC to do the interface... So you need to check if there is any interface for Oracle and Pascal.

Hi Steve,

Is it exists, the interface will be located in the Pascal package. Check also this link:

Re: ORACLE - PASCAL

If this were me, I would use Pro/C and call the C routines from Pascal. You are going to find that C support for any database is far, far more common and available and it is a trivial exercise to then call the external C routines from Pascal. Note that Oracle Pascal precompilers stopped at Oracle 7.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

That seems like the right thing to do. Thank you for the direction.
