    What type of database?
    If you want to do some database programming without building your own I'd suggest www.mysql.com

    SQL was the type of thing i was looking for. Was a little unsure of libraries etc I needed to make a connection to the db, but i'll have a read.

    If anyone could post a url for a good tutorial that would be great

    thanks for your help Thantos

    The link I gave you has links to tutorials on how to setup and use mysql.

    This is the actual link on the mysql site for the API, there are examples and pages on how to use them, not exactly tutorials, but very useful and helpful

    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/C.html

    You can also use PostgreSQL, but the API for that is pretty shoddy :P MySQL is so much easier to use once you get the hang of it. There are also heaps of sites with example add, del and list functions for MySQL, I'd attach some, but you can find them by typing in 'example mysql c api' in google
