I take the view that C++, STL and MySQL++ do a tremendous amount of work
for the programmer, and they do most of that work at compile time. In
exchange for this, you get a program that runs very quickly -- compared
to, say, a Perl DBI based program -- and doesn't sap months of
If you wanted to trade development time for compile time, you could use
the MySQL C API instead.
I don't mean suggest that you take the option. It's just that there are
no free lunches, and you should know what you are trading to get the
benefits you have.
