Is anyone out there actually using mxODBC with Solid? I gave it a try but
there were a number of unresolved symbols due to certain features not
being present in Solid's ODBC interface. I could have probably hacked out
those features (or added some dummy functions), but at the time, I didn't
have time. I was already using the GAMS/Lausch database, which has some
probmlems (some of which I think I corrected to make it reliable for my
applications). This was a couple months ago, so perhaps the latest version
of mxODBC is more directly compatible with Solid (2.2).
