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
