   Hello Tiago,

     We're using Erlang ODBC facility, and it works indeed, but it
requires a little bit of your patience ;-). Our particular scenario at
the moment is the following:

	* Debian GNU/Linux O.S.
	* Erlang RC9-2 (*not* debian package)
	* UnixODBC 2.2.4-11 (debian package)
	* PostgreSQL 7.4.6-6 (debian package)

     In order to get the ODBC 2.0 erlang module compiled you may read
this message:
