Click below to view this publication IBM Informix IBM Informix ESQLC Programmers Manual Version 3. 50 SC The topics explain how to use IBM Informix ESQLC, the Informix implementation of Embedded Structured Query Language (SQL) for C (ESQLC), to create client applications with databasemanagement capabilities.
These topics serve as complete guide to the features of Informix ESQLC that enable you to interact with the database server, access databases, manipulate the data in your IBM Informix ESQLC Programmers Manual.
Contents. Introduction. About this publication. Types of users. Software dependencies. Assumptions About Your Locale. Programming with IBM Informix ESQLC. What Is IBM Informix ESQLC? ESQLC Components. Creating an ESQLC Program. Embedding SQL Statements. Informix produces SQL APIs for the following programming languages: C; COBOL. All SQL API products work in a similar way, as Figure 51 shows. You write a source program in which you treat SQL statements as executable code.
For more information on multithreaded applications, see the INFORMIXESQLC Programmer's Manual. Static Embedding This document describes the operating system requirements for IBM Informix ESQLCOBOL In This Chapter Informix products use the Informix general libraries for interactions between the client SQL application programming interface products (INFORMIXESQLC and INFORMIXESQLCOBOL) and the database server.
You can choose between the following types of Informix general libraries to link with your ESQLC application: Informix ESQLCOBOL. According to our registry, Informix ESQLCOBOL is capable of opening the files listed below. Its possible that Informix ESQLCOBOL can convert between the listed formats as well, the applications manual can provide information about it.
