    There must be dozens of database access libraries for C++. May I recommend SOCI?

    I personally learned how to use MySQL with C++ and I must say that it is very easy to use and access and modify with the use of SQL syntax, so I would assume that there is a library that will allow for SQL database access in your C++ programs

    If you do not need a full fledged database server, I suggest an embedded database engine such as SQLite.
