Is it true that 16-bit C compilers cannot connect to databases?

P: 44

Is it true that 16-bit C compilers cannot connect to databases? I have Borland Turbo C++ version 3.0. Would I have to use a 32-bit compiler if i want to use a database for my application?
Would someone also suggest some names of 32-bit compilers.

No its not true, what may be true is that no-one produces 16-bit libraries any more to facilitate connection of 16 bit programs to databases.

Some 32 bit compilers are

Visual Studio 2008 Express (or 2005 if you want tried and tested technology)
Code Blocks (actually and IDE that uses gcc)
Eclipse (again an IDE that uses gcc)
Intel produce a compiler for there chips.

Thank you.
I downloaded the GCC compiler.

Also, are there no chances of a 16-bit compiler connecting to a database?, Say, if one adds the necessary libraries (is it even possible). I only wanna make sure that 16-bit compilers dont connect to databases, whatever change you make to them.. I have Borland's Turbo C++ version 3.0

Thank you again.
