FFI (Foreign Function Interface) bindings for ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) As ffi bindings to C-APIs are low level by nature this library is intended to be the foundation of other libraries to build on top, rather than to be used directly.
- Providing declarations of ODBC Symbols compatible to the C-Interface of an ODBC Driver Manager
- Provide correct definition of symbols for Unix and Windows in either 32Bit or 64Bit flavour
- Not to abstract away any power of the underlying API
- Increase type safety where feasable
- As it is as of now unlikely to happen that anyone is writing ODBC 2.0 applications in Rust therefore deprecated symbols like 'SQLAllocEnv' have been left out intentionally.
This library will link against
odbc32.dll (preinstalled) on Windows systems. On Linux and OS-X it links against
libodbc.so by default. This is typically provided by unix-odbc. Using the
--feature iodbc you can also link against
libiodbc.so. This may be interessting if you are trying to connect to some older data sources on OS-X.
Use your systems packet manager to install
unixodbc-dev. E.g. on Ubuntu / Debian
sudo apt install unixodbc-dev
On Intel based architectures you can install
unix-odbc using homebrew.
brew install unixodbc
Note for ARM based OS-X Systems (MAC M1):
cargo build is not going to pick up
libodbc.so installed via homebrew due to the fact that homebrew on ARM Mac installs into
/opt/homebrew/Cellar as opposed to
You find documentation on what directories are searched during build here: https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/environment-variables.html#dynamic-library-paths.
You can also install unixODBC from source:
- copy the unixODBC-2.3.9.tar.gz file somewhere you can create files and directories
- gunzip unixODBC*.tar.gz
- tar xvf unixODBC*.tar
Thanks to @TBPixel for testing this!
As windows does ship with ODBC preinstalled, you are good to go out of the box.
Symbols are added to this library as we go along implementing uses cases in higher level APIs. If you miss something please do not hesitate to contribute.
