C/C++ access with no postmaster running?

P: n/a
Is there a way from C++ to essentailly use postgresql as an embedded
database? I have a situation where I'd rather have a postgrtes daemon
running on my customer's machine except when my client application is up.
Preferably I'd like to not have to establish a network connection, and
hence use the daemon at all, to the datbase but just perform queries from
my c++ code. I've only used postgresql over the net, with a daemon, and
JDBC which is the traditional method so this is new territory. Can anyone
point me in the right direction in the docs?

Thanks in advance for the help.

PG only runs as a daemon. However, you can connect over UNIX-domain
sockets rather than Internet sockets if you want.
