Compiling and Linking (Embedded SQL Guide)
After preprocessing a program, it must be compiled and linked. Compiling creates an object module from the preprocessed source file. Use a host-language compiler to compile the program. The linking process resolves external references and creates an executable object. Use the tools available on a given platform to link an object module of a program to other object modules and libraries, based on the platform, operating system and host language used.
These steps apply whether the code is output from the
gpre embedded SQL preprocessor, or the code was created using the InterBase API. Link applications only with the shared GDS library.
