I tried a few weeks ago to get MapInfo to connect to PostgreSQL using the
ODBC driver. The problem is that MapInfo sends all column names in double
quotes, but doesn't quote them in the WHERE clauses. Because PostgreSQL
only keeps the column name cases when quotes are used, and MapInfo sends
everything in uppercase, it treats them as different, so it fails.

I hadn't had chance to look at this since, although it would be useful for
work.

I don't know about Arc/info, but at some point I'm going to take a look at
Grass.
