ODBC, libpq, libpq++, JDBC are the available options. Don't even think
about doing a custom implementation on sockets; you'll just be
duplicating work already done.

Not sure. Look at the newest online docs at in the
chapter on Security, which discusses ssh, or check the mailing list

They compile on two dozen platforms. Not sure what Borland requires
for code, how C++ compliant it is (the standard evolves faster than
the compilers), etc.

Good luck.
