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 definitions. Rebol The Official Guide is heavily invested in that sort of strategy. 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! tim
