Strange what some people have to do for a living! :)
Do you mean a Perl-level wrapper (ala Win32::ODBC API)
or a C-level ODBC emulation?
If the former, then the Win32::DBIODBC hack may be s start:http://search.cpan.org/src/TIMB/DBI-1.603/lib/Win32/DBIODBC.pm
If the later then I suspect you're in for a bumpy ride.
Grafting DBI into the guts of an exiting open source ODBC driver
may be the best approach here.
But I'm having no luck finding the formal ODBC 3.5 spec.
It appears our friends in Redmond have deep-6'd it from
their websites, and a lengthy googling session
hasn't surfaced anything.
Anyone know where the spec might be hiding ?
archive.org may help.
Last clue I had was some MSDN CD circa 2000.
Sounds plausible. You may be able to find a copy of the "ODBC 3.5
Developers Guide" book by Roger Sanders (pub Mc Graw Hill).
