Introduction to Tcl Database Connectivity

Published , updated

Tcl 8.6 shipped with the Tcl Database Connectivity (TDBC) API for accessing disparate SQL database implementations in a standard manner. I happened to need it for the first time recently and collected my notes into an introductory article for the benefit of those who, like me, prefer to be spoon fed.

The content turned out to be a little long for a blog post so it is instead made available separately here as part of the Topics in Tcl Programming series.
