RE: Cygwin + Oracle (Pro*C)

How silly of me. Naturally should I've tried it. I come from db/2
(mainframe). There are preprocessors too, which call (access)PLANS and I
played with those a bit. Therefore my hesitation. 

My train of thought was that since ProC is a preprocessor that converts into
calls in a win2k environment it plainly could not work using those calls in
a different runtime environment CygWin.

I'm only on my first cup of coffee...and have not tried it yet, but will
keep you about my adventures posted. Maybe I make things more complicated
than they really are.

Sorry, I have no clue about Oracle but...

Does that mean you've tried?  If not, try.  The detailed results of a
failure here may help someone on this list spot your problem, even if
they aren't familiar with Oracle.

No.  I can be emphatic about that.

Me too.
