Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Tcl and Postgresql Books

Posted by Roberto Mello on
A book that I just reviewed is pretty good for teching you PostgreSQL and accesing it from Tcl: "Beginning PostgreSQL." It hasn't been published yet tho :-( It's being published by Wrox Press.

If you are accessing PG from "regular" Tcl (i.e. not within AOLserver Tcl) you should look at "nstcl", a Tcl database abstraction layer written by fellow OpenACS'er Michael Cleverly.

nstcl implements the same familiar AOLserver "ns_db" calls, and it currently supports PostgreSQL, Oracle and Solid. Check it out at http://michael.cle
