The iODBC development team has decided to use GIT instead of CVS.
Users who are tracking the iODBC project or want to aid in it's
development are encouraged to move with us to github via:
For information about GIT see also README.GIT
This document describes how to checkout a copy of the CVS tree for
development purposes. It also lists the packages that need to be
installed prior to generating the necessary scripts and Makefiles to
build the project.
CVS access is only needed for developers who want to actively track
progress of the iODBC source code and contribute bugfixes or enhancements
to the project. It requires basic knowledge about the general layout
of open source and GNU projects, the use of autoconf and automake etc,
which is beyond the scope of this document. If you have any questions,
please email us at <>.
CVS Archive Server Access
OpenLink currently provides read-only CVS Archive access through the servers:
$ cvs login
(The password is blank)
$ cvs -z3 co iODBC
