Dao Technology, the leading South Korean database management system vendor, is developing a Korean-language version of SQL using the Hangul character set. It uses Unix versions that support 16-bit character definition, allowing support for the 20,000-plus ideograms used in Korean. Dao has an exclusive local distribution contract with Informix Corp for the US firm’s Unix ISQL database product, and will join with local firms to market Unix-based workstations and minis using the Korean software.
