You must not do that.  The data directory is managed by the server
process (postmaster) using shared memory.  Your application should
communicate with the server by a TCP/IP connection on port 5432 (by
default).  Presumably the client library is built into gambas - if not
you will perhaps be able to use ODBC instead.
