now that i've gotten all the problems setting up my
development box out of the way, i need to focus in on
actually programming my applications.

i'm using php/apache/pgsql.  the way i see it, i have
three choices.

1. pg api - all my books cover this approach and it is
kinda cool. ;-)  downside is it locks you into pgsql
(not to big a deal) and you have to code like a
monster to get all your classes and functions
together.

2. pear - has some neat functions and classes pre made
- plug and play, as it were.  however, i'd still have
a lot to learn using this style of programming b/c
i've never used before.  i feel mor comfortable with
pg's api right now.

3. adodb - this just started sounding compelling about
30 minutes ago.  seems to be faster and more portable
than pear.  seems to have some nice functionality,
too.  not sure if it has the same level of
class/function support - need to read up on this.

as a rookie, i appreciate the wisdon gained over
windows broken on second floors as monitors get tossed
out of them... ;-)

if you have something to say that you think is of
value, please chime in.

tia...
