Not me.  Not a Sather CGI class that I know of.  I guess I'd use PHP
on Apache if I wanted something like that.

Yes!  David W. Simons wrote something called pgsaql, an interface to
PostgreSQL.  Years ago.  I've been using it ever since.  There are
recently-added libpg query and other functions not included.  It makes
a connection and does PQexec(), whose argument is an SQL query string,
but (from memory) not PQexecParams() which takes typed arguments.

Dunno.  He offered it as new classes for the GNU Sather library but
the maintainer at the time didn't take it up.  (Not for any good
reason - there's nothing wrong with it.)  May be now in the contribs
file at though I haven't checked it yet.

Give me a week or two (don't tie me down!) and I'll put a version of
Sather there that has a Contribs directory with pgsaql in it.  It or
an update will eventually be Sather library classes.
