Ah! PHP! It is a beautiful thing! It is a web scripting language, server side. It is one of the most popular modules used by Apache. It is the equivalent of ASP and JSP. It can also be used with Windows PWS or IIS. It is GPL. It is a VERY easy language to learn. Very fast too. CLI I THINK is an IBM wrap to ODBC for DB2 databases. I may be understanding that wrong, though. http://nscpcw.physics.upenn.edu/db2_docs/db2c0/db2c002.htm Appendix E. I am very pro PHP. If you ever here of LAMP in web/Linux circles it stands for: Linux Apache MySQL(open source database server) PHP. It is a very popular combo for web applications, although I prefer PostgreSQL over MySQL. A lot more feature rich. I get bored easy though, and since I conquered PHP, I am going to go play with JSP now I think. And as a shameless plug, in January Wrox is releasing their third book on PHP, Professional PHP 4 (4 is the version of the software, not the book). I will be listed inside as a technical reveiwer. :) Adam Lang Systems Engineer Rutgers Casualty Insurance Company http://www.rutgersinsurance.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "Steve Richter" <srichter@AutoCoder.com> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Friday, December 28, 2001 1:40 PM Subject: Re: Changed to: Remote database performance > Hi Adam, > > > > > I make calls to it using the ODBC API in PHP > > what is PHP ? > > > It communicates with the AS/400 via CLI > > what is CLI ? > > > Thanks, > > Steve Richter > > > > > _______________________________________________ > This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list > To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com > To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, > visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l > or email: MIDRANGE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org > Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives > at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l. > >
