Monkeybread Software (http://www.mbsplugins.de/)
has started plug-in development for REAL Server,
the SQL database sever from REALsoftware. In this
very first version of our plugin, they have
° SoundExMBS(text as string) as string; returns
soundex string for the given text;
° RemoveAccentsMBS(text as string) as string;
returns text without accents. for example é to e;
° RemoveAccentsCaseInsensitiveMBS(text as string)
as string; returns text without accents. for
example é to E and Ä to A;
° ReadBlobMBS(data as blob, path as string) as
blob; returns the blob if it is not null or reads
the file from the given path and returns the
content as blob;
° WriteBlobMBS(data as blob, path as string) as
string; writes the blob to the given file path.
On success returns the path. On failure returns
error. Path must be native path and should only
contain ASCII characters.
This plug-in is still in development and can be
used for free until March 31. It’s been tested
with REALserver 2009 and works on Mac OS X,
Windows and Linux.
