unixODBC

The unixODBC project provides Unix applications with the same ODBC 3.51 API and facilities available under Windows. It provides a Driver Manager that supports the full ODBC API and performs the ODBC 3 to ODBC 2 translations with UNICODE to ANSI conversion. It also includes a set of graphical utilities that allow users to specify connections to DBMSes to be used by applications, a collection of ODBC drivers including a simple text based driver, an NNTP driver, a Postgres driver and others, and a selection of templates and libraries that to aid in the construction of ODBC drivers. It works with MySQL, Postgres, StarOffice/OpenOffice, Applixware, iHTML, PHP, Perl DBD::ODBC, and many other applications and drivers. Connection pooling is also provided to increase performance with applications such as PHP.

    Awesome Work!!!!
    I installed this, not expecting it to work, but installation was clean, and there was a very nice GUI tool for configuration. And WHAM my PostgreSQL database was available to StarOffice, where I can build reports, execute queries, and create table, all in a beautiful and very intelligent graphical environment. Kudoo's to these guys, this works smoother than several commercial products I have tried. Now I just need an Informix driver. :)
