Hi,

How the UNIX script can retrive data from the Sybase database?

What I want to know is "What are all teh aprameters to be passed to retrive data ... Will the parameters be different for the UNIX connecting to othere database like DB2,Oracle....IF so what will be the difference in paramets .... On what basis the difference is standardised.....

Is there any document or any sort of information I can found that .. "Which particular version of the UNIX server ... can be connected to the particulr version of the database ( Whatever the database may be) "

Please give me information on this and the links that  can provide me more information in this area..

Thanks a lot in advance

waiting for reply

With most database systems you can usually aquire a 'client' set of binarys or API's to enable a UNIX scripts to connect to a database.

It is purely up to the database vendor if these binaries exist for a given version of UNIX.

Third party companies can also provide UNIX binaries that can be called to access a database, but you then start to create a inter-dependency between O/S Vendor - 3rd party - DBMS vendor rather than just O/S and DBMS vendor - which is the normal 'certified' option.

Once you have a set of binaries you scripts can manipulate parameters before calling the database - therefore parameter format is completely open.

Cheers
