libdbi implements a database-independent abstraction layer in C, similar to the DBI/DBD layer in Perl. Writing one generic set of code, programmers can leverage the power of multiple databases and multiple simultaneous database connections by using this framework.

This guide explains the internal DBD interface for libdbi drivers, and provides a reference for all available driver helper functions.
