I'm a total beginner at C++, and I'm planning on trying out by writing a small, text-based game with a command line.
The game has different areas which are described in pure text, and I guess a good solution to put all the pure data (descriptions and so on) in a database.
* Is it hard to make a small system for retrieving (and maybe writing) data from a database to a console app?
* What database system is the easiest/best for this type of application??
* Oh, and all other tips and tricks on the subject would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
