I am PhD student at EPFL, Switzerland, and I am working on database
replication. I just started looking at MonetDB and I have a simple
doubt. Are modules like the SQL module written in MIL or in C/C++?
I downloaded the sources of the SQL front end and I found some files
whose extension is ".mx" and which seem to implement the SQL translator
into MIL. The code looks pretty much like C++.
Moreover, I read somewhere in your web page that two-phase-locking is
implemented outside the database kernel. Where exactly is it implemented
for the SQL front end?
Thank you very much in advance!
