DB2 SQL in *free* C++ CGI?

I haven't seen this one answered yet.  Where can I get a non-commercial C++ library for SQL queries/updates in a HP/UX CGI program?
1 Solution
There are several freeware/shareware SQL packages.  I review those, as well as some commercial ones on http://linas.org/linux/db.html (try if the earlier doesn't work).

My current favorite is mSQL.  Iv'e written some C++ wrappers for it, I can send you these, but you might be happier with the original C code.  I use mSQL exclusively from special-purpose C++ CGI bins.

Although the web pages focuses on Linux, I beleive that mSQL will compile and run on almost any version of unix.  mSQL is nice because it comes with a wide variety of goodies & addons, such as perl & tcl interfaces, several varieties of generic SQL-Web gateways; it can be used to store & addminister passwords on the apache web server, it has microsoft ODBC interfaces ... etc.
