I know the Sleepycat's Berkelay DB packages but isn't what I need.
I need a relational database that can be used outside our Acucobol program,
like Excel, Access, Apache and in general a SQL view of our data for external
analysis and presentation. This is why I'm thinking to use SQL and in 
the PostgreSQL. Currently there is only one direct interface from Acucobol and
a SQL server and was developed by DBMaker for their SQL server, but have
some limitation that I want bypass.
