I'm not sure I catch your meaning entirely, but if what you mean is you want
to write programs that access a PostgreSQL database through libpq or libpq++,
I'd be willing to help.  It isn't very hard, although libpq++ is a bit
awkward in its interface.  The basic rule for learning it is to ignore the
PgCursor, PgLargeObject and PgConnection classes.  The latter may come in
handy but you'll never actually /need/ it, because PgDatabase only differs
from it in that it also lets you see query results.

And as I never fail to point out, I am working on a replacement called
libpqxx.  This requires a good compiler and a programmer used to advanced 
C++ concepts, but given those requirements should be easier to use and use

It can be found on my home page:
