This appendix presents the methods for calling FlashBASIC subroutines from an ODBC client on UNIX only.
The methods are:
Using pass-through queries with non-SQL syntax
Using SQL syntax
These methods apply only to D3 running on a UNIX server.
Using pass-through queries is more efficient and is the recommended method. But if the client tool being used does not support passing non-standard commands, the SQL syntax can be used to make simple FlashBASIC subroutine calls from an ODBC-compliant application.
The last section of this appendix includes a set of system-provided FlashBASIC subroutines that can be used to access indexes and system information.
