1Welcome to libpqxx, the official C++ API to the PostgreSQL database
2management system.
4There are many similar libraries for PostgreSQL and for other
5databases, some of them database-independent.  Most of these, however,
6are fairly C-like in their programming style, and fail to take
7advantage of the full power of the C++ language as it has matured
8since the acceptance of the Standard in 1996.  What libpqxx brings you
9is effective use of templates to reduce the inconvenience of dealing
10with type conversions; of standard C++ strings to keep you from having
11to worry about buffer allocation and overflow attacks; of exceptions
12to take the tedious and error-prone plumbing around error handling out
13of your hands; of constructors and destructors to bring resource
14management under control; and even basic object-orientation to give
15you some extra reliability features that would be hard to get with
16most other database interfaces.
