[lug] ODBC

I'm working on an intranet project right now using postgreSQL database and
unixODBC on my linux box.  I'm writing the CGIs in C using ODBC for the
database access and it works very well.

For unixODBC I used their tool ODBCConfig for setting up the DSN and
the drivers.  If you need more config info you could email me offline if you

I tried using MyODBC with MySQL and was not successful.  I liked the database
but could not get MyODBC to work properly.  I would be interested in hearing if
anyone else has been successful with MyODBC and MySQL.

Hope this helps.
