Yes and no. Yes, we (eShop) are going to develop an Informix module within
the next 10 days, and no, we haven't begun yet :-).
I have worked extensively with Tom's module for about 7 months now. I've
made numerous fixes to it and will actually be releasing a new version of
his module within the next few weeks. Based on that experience, and with
this mailing list's goal/desires for a generalized database API, I proposed
a strawman API to this mailing list last week.
At this point, I plan on using that (strawman) API for the interface to the
Informix module. We should have the module completed quickly, but I don't
think I'll be able to prepare a "formal" release until a few weeks
afterwards. I can certainly arrange to get it to you before then, though.
