Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I need to write a C client program that communicates with a Microsoft SQL server.
I need help with finding the actual content of the messages that flow between the client and the server, and best - if there is aleady such a code which I can re-use.
Thanks in advance,
If you need something that can run on the command line, I could suggest maybe PHP, as well. But for C, I don't know.
Well, thanks for the reply. Yet, I have to do it in C. I've got the document that describes the protocol of thoe messages that flow bwetween the client and the server, and I'm implementing them as a client software.
The doc is the spec of "Tabular Data Stream Protocol" Version 4.2 by Microsoft.
It would work for mysql provided that I have the mysql client program installed on my machine.
Yet, I need to implement a client for Microsoft SQL - which as far as I know, has no line command client program for their DB server.
