getting connection to ACCESS database using plain C/C++

Can anybody tell me how to establish connection to
a access database using a C program, do we have any
library specifically designed for it.
For ORACLE, we use OCI calls embedded in C language to
establish the connection and to fetch the required data.
For SYBASE/SQL-Server, we use DB-LIB calls to get the same effect.
Can you tell me any similar way of accessing data from a
access database??
Please note that i don't want to use ASP in this regard.

I just want this to access a MS-ACCESS database through web,
that too through a plain C/C++ program...

I don't if there native libraries for MS-Access but ODBC is quite near. Somewhere http://msdn.microsoft.com should be libraries and header files.
