Re: pro*c

Hi

the link for the Pro*C documentation is indicated in this thread
http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=962858

Pro*C is a pre-compiler, therefore you should be able to access to all C libraries.

Saying that I had the issue for an application where Oracle libraries where incompatible with some other libraries (dce rpc ?)

Re: pro*c

hi,

have a look at great document at:
http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B10501_01/appdev.920/a97269/pc_0
7pls.htm

However, note that with Oracle9i, with external tables, merge, pipelined functions -- it is very very hard to find a reason to use C.

hope this helps!

Re: pro*c

And if you have perl + DBI + DBD::Oracle, why not use that.
perl is much easier in socket programming than pro*c
