       isql, iusql - unixODBC command-line interactive SQL tool

       isql DSN [USER [PASSWORD]] [options]

       isql  is  a  command  line  tool which allows the user to execute SQL in batch or interac-
       tively. It has some interesting options such as an option to generate output wrapped in an
       HTML table.

       iusql is the same tool with built-in Unicode support.

       DSN    The Data Source Name, which should be used to make connection to the database.  The
	      data source is looked for in the /etc/odbc.ini and $HOME/.odbc.ini  files  in  that
	      order, with the latter overwriting the former.

       USER   Specifies the database user/role under which the connection should be made.

	      Password for the specified USER.

       -b     Run  isql in non-interactive batch mode. In this mode, the isql processes its stan-
	      dard input, expecting one SQL command per line.

	      Delimits columns with delimiter.

       -xHEX  Delimits columns with HEX, which is a hexadecimal code of the delimiting	character
	      in the format 0xNN - i.e. 0x09 for the TAB character.

       -w     Format the result as HTML table.

       -c     Output  the  names of the columns on the first row. Has any effect only with the -d
	      or -x options.

       -mNUM  Limit the column display width to NUM characters.

	      Sets locale to LOCALE.

       -q     Wrap the character fields in double quotes.

       -3     Use the ODBC 3 calls.

       -n     Use the newline processing.

       -e     Use the SQLExecDirect instead of Prepare.

       -k     Use SQLDriverConnect.

       -v     Turn on the verbose mode, where the errors are fully described. Useful  for  debug-

	      Prints the program version and exits.

       This section briefly describes some isql runtime commands.

	      List all tables in the database.

       help table
	      List all columns in the table.

       help help
	      List all help options.

       $ isql WebDB MyID MyPWD -w -b < My.sql

       Connects  to  the WebDB as user MyID with password MyPWD, then execute the commands in the
       My.sql file and returns the results wrapped in HTML table.  Each line in My.sql must  con-
       tain  exactly  1 SQL command, except for the last line, which must be blank (unless the -n
       option is specified).

	      System-wide DSN definitions. See odbc.ini(5) for details.

	      User-specific DSN definitions. See odbc.ini(5) for details.
