(, a library which provides a Unix-like interface to 
Windows. To the best of my knowledge there is no native Windows port available

then. I didn't get an answer to my question. So I assumed that the project is 
pretty dead. There is support for prepared statements. So I ended up using APR 
DBD. The documentation is alright. Though I did find myself digging into the 
source to understand a few things.

I haven't used it on Windows, but the whole point of the APR is cross platform 

Best wishes,

Hello, Good day.I have following queries. -As libdbi provides standard C
