File naming conventions

SQL Anywhere uses consistent file naming conventions to help identify and group system components.

These conventions include:

  • Version number   The SQL Anywhere version number is indicated in the file name of the main server components (executable files, dynamic link libraries, shared objects, license files, and so on).

    For example, the file dbeng12.exe is a version 12 executable for Windows.

  • Language   The language used in a language resource library is indicated by a two-letter code within its file name. The two characters before the version number indicate the language used in the library. For example, dblgen12.dll is the message resource library for the English language. These two-letter codes are specified by ISO standard 639-1.

    For more information about language labels, see Language Selection utility (dblang).

    For a list of the languages available in SQL Anywhere, see Localized versions of SQL Anywhere.
