The HDBC package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

HDBC provides an abstraction layer between Haskell programs and SQL relational databases. This lets you write database code once, in Haskell, and have it work with any number of backend SQL databases (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, ODBC-compliant databases, etc.)

Readme for HDBC

Readme for HDBC-2.3.1.0

Welcome to HDBC, Haskell Database Connectivity.

HDBC is modeled loosely on Perl's DBI interface, though it has also
been influenced by Python's DB-API v2, JDBC in Java, and HSQL in
Haskell.

Please see doc/Database-HDBC.html for an introduction to HDBC and its
various features.

INSTALLATION
------------

You'll need either GHC 6.4.1 or above, or Hugs 2005xx or above.

The steps to install are:

1) ghc --make -o setup Setup.lhs

2) ./setup configure

3) ./setup build

4) ./setup install   (as root)

If you're on Windows, you can omit the leading "./".

Documentation is in doc/ -- lots of information, including pointers to
drivers, is in doc/Database-HDBC.html.

USAGE
-----

To use with hugs, you'll want to use hugs -98.

To use with GHC, you'll want to use -package HDBC in your programs.
Or, with Cabal, use Build-Depends: HDBC.
