Hello!

I am trying to access legacy databases (MUMPS and COBOL) through TCL.

I hope to build a reading interface to explore and export it, and perhaps some component to expose it to a broader system.

Lots of sensitive medical data.

Any idea to start?

Thanks.

I implemented a Tcl interface to the GT.M Mumps database by using the
the C interface.  It wasn't too difficult.  A lot depends on the interfaces
offered by your version of Mumps.  COBOL, I dunno.  If there's a C library
for calling into the COBOL, you may be OK, but there's no generic answer.

The care for the data itself is a legal issue with whatever internal rules
your company adds on top of that.

What M database engine do you wish to access (Cache, FreeM, MiniM ...?)
Are you a MUMPS programmer that is capable of writing a tcp client app in mumps that would reside on your target M database system.
We have done this several ways; but need more info to be of any help.
