Hi Rajesh,

Pro*C needs to be installed on the Oracle box (where the server is installed) as it links to the Oracle libraries during compilation.  This is the safer option.  Then, your Pro*C code will have to be writen on the Windows machine.
Alternatively, you can install just the Pro*C component on your Linux machine.  That will install the required libraries.  That means you will need a Linux version of Oracle.  This will also install some other required components that you may not need to use.
Pro*C does come as part of the Oracle CD and you can select to install just that option.
Hope this helps.

Regards,

Debu.

Hi Rajesh Pal,

it is essential for you to have knowledge in C programming and make file management.
you can try the "demo_proc.mk" sample from oracle to make your first Pro*C.
Pro*C is simple, just select the Pro*C option when you install oracle.
If you are not DBA, just type "proc", if there are messages, Pro C is installed. Otherwise you have to check with the DBA or check your environment settings.

then make your own copy of "demo_proc.mk" and try your pro c program.
