Database access - Mac Programming

Hi, I'd like to add to my (ObjC/Cocoa) app the ability to read & query database files (or even just read, then search by iterating through. Modifying/Adding records can wait 'til later). Is there an API, or any online reference that could help me on OS X? Using the excellent wotsit.org, I've written a dBase pr, but it's very tedious, with the various differing versions. I'd like to support any common Mac & PC database (open?) formats. TIA! Mike....

    Apple used to have a gem of a framework (Enterprise Objects Framework,
    aka, EOF) for doing this, but then some dolt thought databases and the
    web were exclusively tied together and when they took WebObjects
    Java-only, they took EOF with it.

    Depending on what you want to do, a stab at a framework that approaches
    database-independent object persistence from an NSCoder perspective is
