C

Access Caché from C programs.

Background Information

C is a commonly used programming language.

Available Tools

Caché Callin API

Enables you to access Caché from C programs. You can execute Caché commands and evaluate ObjectScript expressions. The Callin API permits a wide variety of applications. For example, you can use it to create an interface between ObjectScript and an application that presents an integrated menu or GUI. If you gather information from an external device, such as an Automatic Teller Machine or piece of laboratory equipment, the Callin API lets you store this data in a Caché database. Any language that uses the C/C++ calling standard for that platform can invoke the Callin functions.

See Using the Caché Callin API.
