Programming for Oracle on Linux, Part 2
As I pointed out in the first part of this series, interaction with Oracle databases can be as simple as a few hundred lines of code. Between our C source and Makefile, we've written a mostly complete application with a decent amount of exception handling and comments in a total of 394 lines of code. To be more complete, we could add signal handling and some additional database consistency checks, but for our modest application these things can be done in a small amount of code as well. Additionally, as with Perl, it would be possible to link against other database connection libraries, such as the libmysqlclient library for MySQL or PostgreSQL's libpq, and use wrapper functions to make our interfaces more generic. But that's another topic for another time.
