Embedded SQL

Question:
What is Embedded SQL, and how is it used with the C language?

Answer:
As the name implies, Embedded SQL describes SQL statements that are embedded in a host language. C is one of the most common, but other languages like Cobol, Fortran, etc. support embedded SQL statements. The primary reasons for embedding SQL are performance gain and programmatic control. Embedding SQL in a host language gives you the best of both worlds: The host language can control the program, and SQL handles the data.
