Does anyone know how to call an ABF procedure or frame directly from a 3GL
such as COBOL, C, or Pascal ?
: In OpenIngres, you can do this from a 3GL procedure; the program must be
: an ABF application. Before OpenIngres, the answer was no.
You can call an application (ie a program) and even specify a "starting"
4gl procedure/frame name - regardless of the Ingres version. However, you
cannot call that procedure/frame directly - that would be nice, though!
Is it REALLY coming in OpenIngres?

This originally began as a question on the SUID bit under OI 1.1. I've
resigned myself to the fact that OI doesn't honor thw SUID bit in the way
6.x did. I've tried using roles but cannot get past the role password
(posted separately) so now I'm trying groups. Now I find I cannot pass
the ABF/4GL application group (from the command line) to called QBF/RBF
frames or at least I cannot find it.
I guess I could use the CALL SYSTEM statement and generate a command line
call to qbf but that seems a bit kludgy. (I should point out that I do
not have the Vision/ABF/4GL docs for OI, just 6.4.).
Am I missing something? Is my caffeine level too low?
