Need to access ODBC from PB - get SQL Tools, nuf said. Eric did a great job
on it. He also has other tools for PBDLL and PBCC that are highly regarded.
This is a fine db engine written in PowerBasic. There are headers
for VB and Delphi too. Supports variable length records, etc.
I haven't used this extensively, but it's a database engine written in
PBDLL that has turned some heads.
Not a database engine, but an index manager. I handles indexing of
whatever data you want based on its key. Fast, small and gives
the database programmer lots of flexibility.

An excellent, foxpro-compatible, drop-in-BDE-replacement database
engine for Delphi.
I use the codebase engine for a lot of web-based projects. It works great with
PBCC. I use it instead of bullet where fox-pro compatible indices are needed.
Also includes source code and a report writer.
I've had a chance to work with this on both Windows and Linux.
It isn't horribly robust (no transactions without using third party
database structures and no stored procs), but it works pretty good
when used appropriately.

I've used this a lot lately with PBCC (cgi exes) and PBDLL (isapi)
calling it with SQL tools and natively with dblib.
If anyone's interested in a translation of M$'s dblib header files
to PB, I have a partial translation and wrapper done. Just send me an
