Calling FlashBASIC subroutines from ODBC clients (UNIX)

This appendix presents the methods for calling FlashBASIC subroutines from an ODBC client on UNIX only.

The methods are:

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.
