Thanks for the hint, but I won't use MFC in my code (portability).
I'm currently using unixODBC to get started and hope to be able to
preserve source code compatibility with MS's ODBC Driver Manager (and
eventually iODBC if needed).  If there are bugs in the platform code
then these will bother me not before some time from now because I'm
still wrapping all (or rather a subset of) those SQL... functions
which live in sql[ext].h.  Currently my own refcount leaks are much
worse than any driver manager's memory leaks could ever be ;-).


cheers,

andreas
