||Apache License 2.0
||ibm_db2 provides access to DB2 and compatible databases on PHP.
It uses a procedural interface. (PDO users should use PDO_IBM instead.)
The following software is supported without any additional licenses:
- IBM Db2 (Linux/Unix/Windows)
- IBM Db2 for i (running on IBM i)
- Apache Derby
The following software may require additional licenses on the database:
- IBM Db2 Connect for i (for using Db2 for i from LUW)
- IBM Db2 Connect for z (for using Db2 for z from LUW)
Note that for IBM i, IBM and Seiden Group recommend new applications use ODBC instead.
Fixed db2_escape_string() to correct escaping characters.
Fixed segmentation fault caused by XML output parameters when calling stored procedures.
Facilitated a convenience override of db2_connect to invoke db2_pconnect for i5/OS, without needing to change PHP app code.
Added environment options so that the user can specify whether to use lib64 or lib32 directory.
