perhaps I introduced the confusion by using the word "connect"
ambiguously. What I do is to directly use the unify database. My
programs are then running on the sco machine and use the HLI-libraries
to operate directly on the unify database file. In that sense I do not
"connect" to the database. If your programs are running on the linux
machine and want to connect to the unify database on the sco machine,
then I suspect that you are talking about an ELS Server, probably
configured with the DBIntegrator. The DBIntegrator, as far as I
understand it since I don't use this route myself, offers the possibly
of ODBC and JDBC access to the database. There are windows ODBC drives
and a JDBC driver.

If this is your scenario, then the problem is a) how to get ODBC
access to the database under linux, a question I cannot answer, or b)
perhaps using Jython and the JDBC-Driver, which should work if this is
an option.

I hope to have been of some help. Greetings,

Richard Sharp
