D - db question

hi guys, 
here is a simple question for the experts:

how easy would it be for the D programming language to comunicate 
with mysql?, is that possible?, does that work now?
how can I do that? (im not asking for code here, just simple directives on wich
libraries to use or what to do, this isnt a homework or anything, im just
courious)

Check out the MySQL website, there is at least one API for it available 
there.  Also, I'm pretty sure ODBC works with MySQL, in which case you 
could use the API that ships with VC++.

Hmm, I didnt find any D wrappers on the MySql site.  Your best bet is to
read over the C to D part of the manual, and convert the mysql headers ( the
straight C api ).  I never use ODBC but i'm interested on how to use it for
D.

Oops, this is what I meant. You'll have to convert the headers yourself. It shouldn't be too painful. Sean
