A library wrapping X/Open’s SQL/CLI specification for C bindings. This project aims to become the de facto library for implementing ODBC database access in Haskell.

The most available implementation of the SQL/CLI standard is ODBC 3.0. You need the SQL/CLI documentation or ODBC Programmer’s Refference in order to know how to use the functions in this package.

ODBC is a super set of the SQL/CLI specification. All calls in the SQL/CLI are supported by the ODBC drivers. You can use this library to connect to databases to support ODBC. The library is tested with Oracle and Postgres ODBC drivers.

If you want to connect to ODBC, you should also use the calls and definitios of the sqlcli-odbc package.

The SQL.CLI module contains all the foreign function calls, constants and types defined by the SQL/CLI specificaition. You can this module, but it is rather low level. A better choice would be to start working with the calls in the SQL.CLI.Utils module.

SQL.CLI.Utils module contains wrappers to SQL/CLI function calls that make easier to treat the error cases and deal with the SQL/CLI diagnostic as well as other useful constructs in calling SQL/CLI API.
