Linking Applications


UNIX: The makefile, called ex_makefile, found in the installation examples directory, provides a verified example of the recommended way to build applications on UNIX platforms.
Applications built using the procedure contained in this makefile will reference the Mimer SQL shared library called libmimer.

VMS: All Mimer SQL applications should be linked with the options file MIMER.OPT, as shown in the following example:
$ LINK main,MIMLIB:MIMER/OPT

The MIMER.OPT file includes the following:
    • MIMLIB:LR.OLB (object library)
    • MIMLIB:MDR.OLB (object library)
    • MIMLIB:MIMDB.EXE (shareable library)
If an image linked in this fashion is activated, it will translate the logical name MIMDB to get the name of the Mimer SQL shareable library to be used.
The logical name will have been defined by the MIMSETUP command procedure.

Win: The example makefile .\dev\makefile.mak in the installation directory should be copied and used in the recommended way to build applications on Windows platforms.

If applications are linked as recommended above to reference the Mimer SQL shared library, they will automatically use a new version of Mimer SQL when it is installed, without having to be re-linked.
