SQLite might be what you are looking at. It's an embedded database,
basically a library built around flat files making it possible to use
SQL on them.
Due to a bug in gnue-common, SQLite doesn't work with field names that
contain uppercase characters, but we are working on that. If you use all
lowercase names, SQLite works perfectly.

Apart from that, database access in GNUe runs over a quite flexible
plugin system, and writing a new database driver isn't really a big

Currently, the dbf driver is read only, too.
