DBTIME environment variable (deprecated)

The DBTIME environment variable specifies the custom display formats of values in DATETIME columns for SQL API routines in the ESQL/C function libraries.

HCL Informix® products support DBTIME for compatibility with earlier products. It is recommended that you use the GL_DATETIME environment variable for new applications. See also Display formats.
