Pro*C, often pronounced as "pro see" or "pro cee," is an embedded SQL programming language. Pro*C allows users to embed SQL statements in C or C++ code. This integration brings the functionality of SQL databases into C-based applications for Oracle relational database systems. By using Pro*C, developers can perform complex operations and optimize performance by directly accessing database features from their application logic without making costly transitions between languages or environments. The language precompiles source files with embedded SQL commands into standard C code that can be compiled with any ANSI-compliant C compiler, facilitating portability across different platforms while leveraging the power of both languages in a single program.
