How to use Database calls from ksh? by pmcmicha
Posted: 19 Dec 02

To make database calls from ksh, simply use the following:

(**This example uses Sybase**)

#!/usr/bin/ksh -p

ISQL="PATH_TO_ISQL_COMMAND"

${ISQL}/isql -SSYBASE -U${ADMIN_NAME} -P${PASSWORD} <<-(EOF/DONE/something has to be here that isn't normally seen.)
     DB Command
     GO
     (**Repeat as needed**)
EOF/DONE/SOMETHING/etc,etc

More of the script or exit at this point.  Any database can be accessed this way, you simply have to know the syntax from the command line and then just type that into your script like you would anything else.
