For embedded informix SQL statements,

compile it with esql

and include as $INFORMIXDIR to include header files

Its better to create a makefile to ease the process

Thanks for your time
I am very new to this freeBSD. we are still in the middle of getiing it started. There was no issues while installing it. So can u please expalin me how this can be done. I understad that I should include the $INFORMIXDIR along with the header files. How about all the other header files? Should i copy that to here or freeBSD comes with a c compiler?
Can u please give me a bit more wide information related to this.
Thanks in advance

FreeBSD comes gcc. All the regular header files are there in /usr/include. I don't know about informix stuff though.
