Link File vs. Prefix File
« on: August 22, 2023, 09:25:38 AM »
As far as I understand the documentation both file types do the same. So what are the pros and cons? Which one is better when starting to use SQL-tables?

Prefix file is a bit less overhead, however link files are often easier to manage and allow you to use the PREFIX directive to control which database you may want to access.
