Welcome to HDBC, Haskell Database Connectivity. HDBC is modeled loosely on Perl's DBI interface, though it has also been influenced by Python's DB-API v2, JDBC in Java, and HSQL in Haskell. Please see doc/Database-HDBC.html for an introduction to HDBC and its various features. INSTALLATION ------------ You'll need either GHC 6.4.1 or above, or Hugs 2005xx or above. The steps to install are: 1) ghc --make -o setup Setup.lhs 2) ./setup configure 3) ./setup build 4) ./setup install (as root) If you're on Windows, you can omit the leading "./". Documentation is in doc/ -- lots of information, including pointers to drivers, is in doc/Database-HDBC.html. USAGE ----- To use with hugs, you'll want to use hugs -98. To use with GHC, you'll want to use -package HDBC in your programs. Or, with Cabal, use Build-Depends: HDBC. -- John Goerzen December 2005
