C++ library for ODBC SQL database access
libodbc++ is a C++ class library for accessing SQL databases. It is
designed with standards in mind, so it provides a subset of the well-known
JDBC 2.0(tm) and runs on top of ODBC on Windows and Unix/Linux.
This package contains the header files and static libraries which is
needed for development.

For installation instructions, check doc/INSTALL.txt or if
you have a browser around, doc/INSTALL.html.
For programming examples, check the tests/ directory.
There's an almost complete class reference residing in
doc/progref/. If you don't find it enough, you can always
check the JDBC2.0 documentation.
This library aims for JDBC2.0 'compliance'. However, some differences
between Java and c++, as well as ODBC limitations (and lazy developers)
The following cannot be implemented because of limitations in ODBC:
* The Struct, Ref, Blob, Clob and Array classes.
* The getXXXStream() methods in CallableStatement.
Language differences c
Notes on the QT support in libodbc++:
The QT "support" means simply that std::string becomes QString,
std::istream becomes QIODevice and odbc::Bytes becomes QByteArray.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Date, Time and Timestamp are not mapped to QDate, QTime and QDateTime;
QDateTime's resolution is seconds, which is not enough for an SQL
