No more for you!
No more extensions on my contract here so unless something happens this week I guess I'm back to being unemployed. If you know anyone who is hiring and could use a senior level programmer with C/Perl/SQL/UNIX experience please point them at my resume.

I emailed a couple of the development directors at DR and asked them if they were looking for anybody. Gave them your resume. Will let you know if they show any interest.

Have you done much C with oracle stuff?

Unfortunately no. The Oracle experience that I've had was with Perl/DBI/DBD::Oracle not C.

Whenever you say something like that, you should point out that you're a fast learner! :-)

Sure. But he's a fan; when it comes to geekitry, of course he's a fast learner. (Term "geekitry" used admiringly.)

Actually instead I think he should point out that SQL interaction is SQL interaction regardless of language. The actual communication library is just a library or stored process or whatever. It's not the hard part.

If you know "C" and "SQL" I doubt it's a very large leap to knowing "C and SQL."

Of course, I do all my SQL interaction (Oracle and MySQL) in done in shell scripts, so what do I know?

It actually kind of depends

So far I've done C/database interaction in three different ways. First was Unify where I used their Host Language Interface. It was a library of C functions that hooked directly into the guts of the database. Next was Sybase where I used the Entera implementation of DCE to do remote procedure calls to submit SQL to the database. And finally there was Informix where I used embedded SQL. So for all I know Oracle/C might mean one of those three ways, or it could mean something entirely different.
