Posted by muppski (muppski), 8 March 2003Hey
I wanna make a bot that can get data from a Database on the net (*mdb) and type it out in a channel or to a user. Just like ASP writes out things that got written to the database
Got any idea? Someone told me I would need a module...
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 8 March 2003Hi, Muppski. Some follow up questions before I jump in with a long and involved answer to the wrong thing
What access do you have to the database? Are you able to program the server, or are you retrieving the data from another computer?
If you're programming the server, can you remind me which particular database / why you're referring to *.mdb ... most databases that I use are SQL databases and going directly at the files isn't the best way to do it ... if you're not programming the server, how are you going to access the data - FTP? HTTP through a provided web page?
I note you're posting to the Tcl forum. Tcl is an excellent language, but I might tend to look at PHP, Perl or Java in preference for this application. Is there any particular reason that you're asking about Tcl? Do you have any other languages available? ((If you know Tcl well and it's you're only language - fair enugh, it can be done ... but I had better ask))
