Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Ocamlodbc

I recently implemented an access to Oracle for OCaml.
I just use the free C library libsqlora8, which provides
an easy interface to Oracle, and wrap it in a OCaml module.
The interface is simple, and probably limited, but I think
it is suitable to most uses.

The C library is available at
I can give you the wrapping code (a C file + a ML file), if you wish.

Hope this helps,
