mssql #


  • This is a V wrapper of SQL Server ODBC C/C++ library


Windows Notes

Using msvc

  • Make sure cl.exe of msvc is accessible from command line. You can run v commands in Visual Studio 2019 Developer Command Prompt to be safe.
  • C Headers and dlls can be automatically resolved by msvc.

Using tcc

  • Copy those headers to @VEXEROOT\thirdparty\mssql\include. The version number 10.0.18362.0 might differ on your system. Command Prompt commands:
copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.18362.0\um\sql.h" thirdparty\mssql\include
copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.18362.0\um\sqlext.h" thirdparty\mssql\include
copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.18362.0\um\sqltypes.h" thirdparty\mssql\include
copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.18362.0\um\sqlucode.h" thirdparty\mssql\include
copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.18362.0\shared\sal.h" thirdparty\mssql\include
copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.18362.0\shared\concurrencysal.h" thirdparty\mssql\include
  • dlls can be automatically resolved by tcc


  • Support Mac
  • Support ORM

fn (mut conn Connection) connect(conn_str string) ?bool

connect to db

fn (mut conn Connection) close()

close - closes the connection.

fn (mut conn Connection) query(q string) ?Result

query executes a sql query
