the really small



Being a minority platform, RISC OS traditionally has strived to provide good interoperability with other operating systems. Whilst this intention may have suffered at times one area which most definitely was lacking was database connectivity.

This section contains applications and libraries to provide database facilities running natively under RISC OS and to connect to remote databases on other computers using the ODBC standard.

A port of some libraries and applications to implement and manage ODBC on RISC OS.

ODBC stands for Open Data Base Connectivity. Open Database Connectivity is a widely accepted application programming interface (API) for database access. It is based on the Call-Level Interface (CLI) specifications from X/Open and ISO/IEC for database APIs and uses Structured Query Language (SQL) as its database access language.

SQLite is an embeddable SQL database engine.

The engine comes in the form of a library which can be linked into your own applications. A command line tool is also supplied with each version which enables databases to be created and populated and SQL scripts run.
