You can use:

- txtSQL

Is not provided in php, you have to install it to the folder were you have
your scripts or reachable by it.
The sintax is not exactly as sql but is similar, the documentation included
seems to be very good.

I dont know if it does everything you need but it appears to have an fairly
complete list of features avaliable the main drawback is compatibility (the
sql instructions are not sql standard) and speed (its slower, but probably
you wont even notice it).

Good Luck
