I plan to download the version 2.0x software soon and see if I can work
with it. Problem is that Warren is so active that every week almost there is
a new release. When I'm ready to work on my project, I'd like to download
the stable release of MySQL++ and work with that. If I'm successful I'll let
you know what I had to do.

By the way, I'm using Parinya software's IDE to do my work. I tried out
Dev C++ at one point and had some problems. I've found that I need to
recompile everything that I'd like to link to on the version of MinGW's gcc
compilers for it to link properly. I am not trying to mix dll's created with
msvc++ with MinGW c++ dlls. I'm also using FORTRAN dlls compiled with the
same version of gcc in my project. I'm sure not many people here have to
deal with FORTRAN...
