HDBC driver for ODBC

Welcome to hdbc-odbc, the Haskell ODBC backend driver for HDBC. This driver has been tested on Windows and on Linux with unixODBC. It should also be compatible with iODBC, though this has not been tested. It should be portable to any platform supported by both Haskell and unixODBC.

This driver is the preferred method of communicating with MySQL from Haskell.

This software was written by John Goerzen. If you like it, you can send a few dollars my way via my tip jar, though that is certainly optional and doesn’t buy you anything.

Starting Points

Downloads: Source and Binaries

  • Source downloads are available via the HDBC-odbc Hackage page
  • The latest development trees are available via the Github project page
  • You can find Debian packages from the Debian Page.
  • RPMs and packages for many other Linux and BSD distributions are also included with your distribution.


You can always download the source from the Downloads page and attach diffs. But it’s far better, both for you and for me, if you use Git.

Mailing List

I encourage the use of the haskell-cafe mailing list for questions and discussions about HDBC. Gmane has made available excellent archives of this list as well.
