I believe that /command is set up for that. With /core or /view, you
might have to roll your own tcp protocol to query MS-SQL Server.

I'm speaking from my own experience here.... but for what it is worth,
I have found it a matter of scale.
For small databases via cgi, I use rebol reading either delimited
data exported from a commercial database manager or using rebol's
load/save functions to maintain the data as native rebol block
Rebol The Official Guide
is heavily invested in that sort of
For larger databases I use C/C++ with either compiled-in APIs or
an external server.
I would think that a well-written interface from rebol to ms-sql
would be something to be proud of!
