    Hello everybody,

    I am a C/C++ programmer since about 10 years and during all this time,
    I was away from the new needs of companies.
    I was completely satisfied of my work and thought that my growing
    skills would be needed in any company I would go to.

    But now that I want to change I to a more well-paid job, I find it
    difficult because in my country there are not many companies where my
    C/C++ skills are needed.

    And recently I have discovered Pro/C and I think it's a good starting
    point for my changing of job, because oracle is a widely used system.
    (Pro/C is the language that allows you to execute SQL statements from
    a C langue program.)

    But at same time I thought that there might be other better options
    for me than to learn Pro/C and develop using it.
    So I would like you to tell me if there are any options I can look at
    while capitalizing on my C/C++ programming skills.
    I really hate the idea of having to restart from scratch in a new
    field.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi,

    I don't think learning Pro*C means you have to start from scratch since it
    are just some sort of macros that are changed into (some ugly) C code by the
    pro*c compiler. Note that you might want to look into OCI (Oracle Call
    Interface). This is more like a library you link against. A C++ wrapper
    around it and you have your own C++ database class (if you don't use some
    special functions you can make the same thing for MySQL and easily change
    your app to work with either one)..

    Learning oracle is a good addition to your C++ knowledge in my opinion since
    nowadays most applications seem to use databases in some kind of way. The
    nice thiing is that the oracle manuals are available for free online and you
    can even install the oracle express edition.

    Just my two euro cents.
