The NIST SQL Database Loader: STEP Working Form to SQL
This paper is to discuss the NIST SQL Database Loader; this utility takes a STEP file and populates SQL tables with instances of STEP entities. This document is intended as a programmer and user''s guide. After reading Translating Express to SQL: a User''s Guide, users may skip to the User''s Manual section (section 5.0). Programmers should read the following prerequisite reading materials before this document: The NIST Working Form for STEP, The NIST STEP Working Form Programmers Reference, Translation of Express Schema into SQL, Translating Express to SQL, and Translating Express to SQL: A User''s Guide. In addition, objects in the STEP Working Form are tightly coupled with the Express Working Form; some familiarity with the latter will be assumed (see FED-X: The NIST Express Translator and NIST Express Working Form Programmer''s Reference). The NIST SQL Database Loader is implemented in ANSI Standard C. The Oracle Pro*C precompiler is used to embed DQL standard queries in accordance with the ANSI standard for Embedded DQL.
