mxODBC Version 1.1.1
A Python Extension Package providing a generic
Interface to ODBC 2.x API compliant
Database Drivers or Managers
WHAT IT IS:
mxODBC is an extension package that provides a Python Database
API compliant interface to ODBC 2.x capable database drivers
and managers. In addition to the capabilities provided through
the standard API it also provides a rich set of catalog methods
that allow you to scan the database for tables, procedures, etc.
Furthermore, it uses the mxDateTime package for date/time value
interfacing eliminating most of the problems these types normally
mxODBC is known to work with Adabas, MySQL, iODBC Unix ODBC Manager,
Solid, Sybase, OpenLink and Intersolv/Merant ODBC drivers, Oracle/NT,
EasySofts ODBC-ODBC bridge and the Windows ODBC Manager.
This covers pretty much the whole range of well known relational
database engines and gives you all the connectivity you'll need for
doing great database work in Python.
WHAT'S NEW ?
The 1.1.1 version fixes a few small bugs with Solid and Access
and includes an improved test script that allows checking the
database connection as well as the database's capabilities.
The subpackages for EasySoft, MySQL and iODBC were updated
to the latest available versions of the drivers/managers.
Some helper functions for pretty printing result sets have
also made their way into the package.
