D and MYSQL or DB XML
I only discovers D a few days ago, but already I am considering recoding my game
stats tool (AEstats) written in ANSI C. I would love to be able to control a
database from my code, though:

Sofar I have been using Cygwin and Linux (Suse/Debian) to create executable for
Windows and Linux. Alas ANSI C will probably never interface with MySQL or DB
XML.

Has anyone been able to make D use/control a database library like MySQL or DB
XML? 

For both of these DBs C++ libs exist, but since D is no C++ lib link compatible
(from D online manual), I am wondering if there is *any* way to control a
"powerful widespread" database from D at all?

Thanx.

I don't know the answer to your questions, but these links might prove helpful:

Thank you... your links were exactly what I was looking for. It seems MYSQL can
be fully accessed via D... awesome news.

Boy am I looking forward to coding in D :)
