Hi there,
libpq is the C client library for postgresql, and it is pretty well
documented, well designed and fast. There are some database abstraction
libraries also which you can use, including libodbc, libdbi and

I haven't used any of these, although the perl dbi interface (Which I
think the C libdbi is influenced by) is something I have used, and it is
very good.

Maybe some other people have some experience with these abstraction
libraries and can say which to avoid etc.

I know that you can connect to PostgreSQL via JDBC with Java and ODBC with Microsoft programs, but what is the best way to connect to PostgreSQL from an application written to run on Linux? I will most likely be writing the GUI with GTK and Gnome. Any suggestions?
