ECPGPlus v12

EnterpriseDB has enhanced ECPG (the PostgreSQL pre-compiler) to create ECPGPlus. ECPGPlus allows you to include embedded SQL commands in C applications; when you use ECPGPlus to compile an application that contains embedded SQL commands, the SQL code is syntax-checked and translated into C.

ECPGPlus supports Pro*C compatible syntax in C programs when connected to an Advanced Server database. ECPGPlus supports:

  • Oracle Dynamic SQL – Method 4 (ODS-M4).
  • Pro*C compatible anonymous blocks.
  • A CALL statement compatible with Oracle databases.

As part of ECPGPlus' Pro*C compatibility, you do not need to include the BEGIN DECLARE SECTION and END DECLARE SECTION directives.

For more information about using ECPGPlus, see the EDB Postgres Advanced Server ECPG Connector Guide available from the EnterpriseDB website at:
