I'm blogging mainly about my DBD::IngresII Perl Ingres driver.

PPM repository with binary builds of DBD::IngresII

If you need to connect to Ingres from Perl, but for some reason you don't want compile DBD::IngresII by yourself, then DBD::IngresII PPM repository may save your day.

PPM repository contains binary version of DBD::IngresII. You just need to add this repository to Perl Package Manager so you can install driver without compiling anything.

Here it is: http://ppm.xenu.tk

Note that it will work only with Windows version of ActivePerl.

IngTcl - an Ingres driver for Tcl released

I have decided to learn Tcl, however there is no Ingres database driver for it (okay, there is tclsql, but last version was released in 1992), so I have written one by myself.

It is written using mostly using ESQL/C (there is only one pure-Tcl procedure).

Note that it is early version, so (probably :P) it's not bug-free, any success/failure reports are welcome

Note that IngTcl has some unit tests, you need to set few environmental variables...

DBD::IngresII development has moved from GitHub to CodePlex

I have decided to move DBD::IngresII development from GitHub to CodePlex. In my opinion, CodePlex has nicer interface and that was the main reason for move.

Both GitHub and CodePlex are using git as VCS (Version Control System) so exporting repository to CodePlex was easy task.

You can reach new project page here:
