The hdbi package

[ Tags: bsd3, database, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

HDBI 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.)
