Hi,

I would like to know if there is any databases port to linux, p.e. from  
Informix Inc.
I need to move some applications from SCO Unix to linux (i.e. I want to move  
from SCO to linux) and they are written in Informix 4GL.

If there is no Informix port to Linux, I would like to try some other database  
(p.e. one made by yourself!). My biggest table deals with about 170,000  
records.
It doesn't have to be the very best, just to work nice.

If there isn't no databases at all, I'm considering in making one, with SQL  
support, and RPC support. Are you interested on this?

Jorge.

To the best of my knowledge Informix don't sell a Linux version but you 
could try asking them anyway just to establish interest :-).

  If you are happy doing development under SCO and just want to run things 
on Linux get the iBCS emulator from tsx-11.mit.edu:pub/linux/ALPHA/ibcs and 
just do it.

  Actually developing under Linux is harder since you would need a COFF 
compiler and linker for use with the libraries but should be possible if you 
have the time and determination.

A COFF compiler and link presumably means something like gcc and gas and gld
for SCO. The libraries sound the old hard bit.
