The best way, is, well ... Pervasively!

Sorry. I can be kida a jerk like that.

People often do get get hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars worth
of consultation from these groups, for free, by asking the right
questions. Or by asking the questions right, which is the same thing but
different.

Focus. Be absolutely clear. What is it you need to know?

Use the pervasive client. You'll need the SDK to actually access any
data though.

Hi Alex,

You can use ODBC / ADO to access Pervasive DBs. I found this page helpful:

Assuming you mean the Pervasive.SQL DBMS...

....depends what you're trying to do and what you're comfortable with.
Pervasive can be accessed through various access methods, e.g. low-level
C (Btrieve) and Java APIs, ODBC/JDBC, .Net, etc.

For quick-and-dirty utilities and queries I tend to use the old Python
ODBC driver and I've dabbled with Jython+zxJDBC.

For production code I have the luxury of a tried-and-tested C wrapper
developed in-house as a DLL, so I can use that through c-types.
