Hi all,
best to use for simple statements is PEAR::DB. you can write code 
abstract. i found this out while convert a DB from mysql to pgsql, now 
we'll wrap table and field names. then we are always sureto write 
universal code. the problem was the following:
mysql table and field names are sometimes uppercase
while converting with my2pg.pl all names changed to lowercase
alterante: quote tables and fields, but then quote it in your code to. 
if you try to run this quoted code on mysql you'll get errors.
when we have all wrapped, i hope it will run under several RDBMS.
excuse my bad english, it's to long ago i learned it and not often spoken.
have fun, Gerd
