Oracle supports fetch, update, and insert using Unicode(UTF-8) char
string, so long as the client can handle UTF-8.
A C program with embedded SQL is one of such clients. You may
have UTF-8 strings in your SQL statement, **provided your C compiler
can handle it***.

attached mail follows:


Which dbms vendors support fetch, update and insert using
unicode char strings? This interaction would be between
a C program and some vendor-API (embedded SQL or runtime library).

In a more general sense, can someone give an overview of
which DBMSs support unicode and how do they support unicode
in their APIs?
