"Write someone a query, they'll go away for a day. 
 Teach someone to query, they'll just go away."

Today we've tagged HTSQL 2.0 -- a high-level query language 
and web service gateway for relational databases.  This 
release supports SQLite and PostgreSQL.  We wrote this tool
so that business analysts could actually use a database.


At this point, HTSQL 2.0 may not be mature enough for
production use; we expect to fill in any remaining gaps 
in the coming months.  

We're curious what you think.

HTSQL -- A Query Language for the Accidental Programmer

HTSQL ("Hyper Text Structured Query Language") is a
high-level query language for relational databases.   
The target audience for HTSQL is the accidental 
programmer -- one who is not a SQL expert, yet needs
a usable, comprehensive query tool for data access 
and reporting.  

HTSQL is also a web service which takes a request via
HTTP, translates it into a SQL query, executes the
query against a relational database, and returns the
results in a format requested by the user agent (JSON,
CSV, HTML, etc.).

Use of HTSQL with open source databases (PostgreSQL,
MySQL, SQLite) is royalty free under BSD-style
conditions.  Use of HTSQL with proprietary database
systems (Oracle, Microsoft SQL) requires a commercial
license. See ``LICENSE`` for details.

For installation instructions, see ``INSTALL``.  For
list of new features in this release, see ``NEWS``.
HTSQL documentation is in the ``doc`` directory.
