The SQL Anywhere C application programming interface (API) is a data access API for the C / C++ languages. The C API specification defines a set of functions, variables and conventions that provide a consistent database interface independent of the actual database being used. Using the SQL Anywhere C API, your C / C++ applications have direct access to SQL Anywhere database servers.
The SQL Anywhere C API simplifies the creation of C and C++ wrapper drivers for several interpreted programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, and Ruby. The SQL Anywhere C API is layered on top of the DBLIB package and it was implemented with Embedded SQL.
Although it is not a replacement for DBLIB, the SQL Anywhere C API simplifies the creation of applications using C and C++. You do not need an advanced knowledge of embedded SQL to use the SQL Anywhere C API. For more information about implementation, see sqlany_imp.sqc.
