Unhappy C++ interface library for RedHat Linux 9

I need the libpq++ library for interfacing my program with PostgreSQL. Th library was built in with RHL 8.0 but when I upgraded to RHL9.0 my code did not work.

I did get hold of some libpqxx library but it is different. Also I don't want to migrate as that woulkd invelove rewriting the entire code.

This is a desperate SOS for help.

You probably just need to install the correct package. RH9 doesn't install most development packages by default. Use their cute little software package tool that appears when you insert CD#1 to find the Development section for Databases or Applications (I don't know the exact label they use). Click on Details, the check the boxes for anything having to do with postgres.

The package that libpq++ is in is either postresql or postgresql-libs. I discovered this by googling "libpq++ RPM".
