NAME

       /etc/odbcinst.ini - An unixODBC drivers configuration

DESCRIPTION

       /etc/odbcinst.ini  is  a text configuration file for unixODBC drivers. It can be edited by
       hand, but the recommended way to update this file is to use the odbcinst(1) utility.

FILE FORMAT

       The general .ini file format is:

              [SectionName1]
              key1 = value1
              key2 = value2
              ...

              [SectionName2]
              key1 = value1
              key2 = value2
              ...

       Each ODBC driver has its own section and can be referred to by the name  of  its  section.
       Recognized configuration keys are:

       Description
              A text string briefly describing the driver.

       Driver A filesystem path to the actual driver library.

       Setup  A filesystem path to the driver setup library.

       FileUsage
              odbcinst(1)  entry,  if you edit the configuration file by hand, you have to supply
              it yourself.

   TEMPLATE FILES
       The recommended way to manage the drivers  is  using  the  odbcinst(1)  utility.  You  can
       install  the drivers by supplying it with template file, which has the same format as this
       file.

EXAMPLES

       An example of the actual PostgreSQL driver:

              [PostgreSQL]
              Description = PostgreSQL driver for GNU/Linux
              Driver      = /usr/lib/psqlodbcw.so
              Setup       = /usr/lib/libodbcpsqlS.so
              FileUsage   = 1

       By specifying the driver like that, you can  then  reference  it  in  the  odbc.ini(5)  as
       follows:

              Driver = PostgreSQL

       The recommended way to add that driver is by creating a template file containing:

              [PostgreSQL]
              Description = PostgreSQL driver for GNU/Linux
              Driver      = /usr/lib/psqlodbcw.so
              Setup       = /usr/lib/libodbcpsqlS.so

       and call the odbcinst(1):

              # odbcinst -i -d -f template.ini
