Proposal for "DB_odbtp"

» Metadata » Status
» Description
DB_odbtp is a PEAR DB driver that uses the ODBTP extension to connect to a database. ODBTP (Open Database Transport Protocol) allows any platform to remotely connect to any Win32-ODBC accessible database. It can be used to access MS SQL Server, MS Access, and Visual FoxPro databases from platforms like Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Tru64 UNIX, and Novell NetWare. ODBTP is very fast, and robust. It also provides full support for UNICODE data and queries. And, unlike some other DB solutions, the behaviour and capability of DB_odbtp is exactly the same on both Win32 and non-Win32 installations.

DB_odbtp is included in the latest version of ODBTP, which is available at
