    Just got a note from the Firebird database folk at IBPhoenix. The Firebird gpre preprocessor has been successfully tested using OpenCOBOL.

    Firebird usually ships with embedded SQL in C, but provides a

    ./configure --with-gpre-cobol

    option when building from source. Then a few specific settings in .conf configurations, a few tweaks to a symbol table and OpenCOBOL has another avenue to production quality

    EXEC SQL

    Woohoo. Firebird is a pretty cool database SQL engine, with a fine pedigree dating back to 1981, worthy of a look.

    Cheers,
    Brian
