This companion book to the Oracle Database Programmer's Guide to the Oracle Precompilers shows you how to write FORTRAN programs that use the powerful database language SQL to access and manipulate Oracle data. It provides easy-to-follow examples, instructions, and programming tips, as well as several full-length programs to aid your understanding of embedded SQL and demonstrate its usefulness.

An important feature of this manual is its emphasis on getting the most out of Pro*FORTRAN and embedded SQL. To help you master these tools, this manual, accompanied by the Oracle Database Programmer's Guide to the Oracle Precompilers, shows you all the "tricks of the trade" including ways to improve program performance.

This preface contains these topics:


This guide is intended for anyone developing new FORTRAN applications or converting existing FORTRAN applications to run in the Oracle environment. Though written specially for programmers, it is also useful to systems analysts, project managers, and others interested in embedded SQL applications.
