The following sections provide conceptual, reference, and procedural topics that are specific to using global and persistent (GLOP) data in C and C++ UDFs, UDMs, and external stored procedures (collectively called external routines).

Before you can use GLOP data, you must execute the DIPGLOP script to create the DBCExtension database and the tables and stored procedures used to manage and manipulate GLOP data. For information on executing the DIPGLOP script using the Database Initialization Program (DIP) utility, see Teradata Vantage™ - Database Utilities , B035-1102 .

For details on the C library functions that you can use to access GLOP data in a C or C++ external routine, see C Library Functions.
