NAME
       unixODBC - An ODBC implementation for Unix


DESCRIPTION
       ODBC is an open specification for providing application developers with
       a predictable API with which  to  access  Data  Sources.  Data  Sources
       include SQL Servers and any Data Source with an ODBC Driver.

       The  unixODBC  Project  goals are to develop and promote unixODBC to be
       the definitive standard for ODBC on non MS Windows platforms.


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       ODBCSYSINI
              Overloads path  to  unixODBC  configuration  files.  By  default
              equals to '/etc'.


       ODBCINSTINI
              Overloads the name of the drivers configuration file. It is rel-
              ative to ODBCSYSINI and by default set to 'odbcinst.ini'.


       ODBCINSTUI
              Overloads the library name  for  UI.  The  final  name  that  is
              searched  for is evaluated as "lib$ODBCINSTUI". By default it is
              set to 'odbcinstQ4', so the resulting library  name  is  'libod-
              bcinstQ4'.


       ODBCSEARCH
              Overloads  the  configuration  mode and determines where to look
              for configuration files. Must be set to one of  ODBC_SYSTEM_DSN,
              ODBC_USER_DSN  or  ODBC_BOTH_DSN  (the  last  one is the default
              value).


       ODBCINI
              Overloads the path to user configuration file. By default it  is
              set to "~/.odbc.ini".
