const char* odbx_field_value
(odbx_result_t* result, unsigned long pos);
odbx_field_value() returns a pointer to the field data specified by the column index
pos. The field is part of the current row which was retrieved by the latest call to odbx_row_fetch().
All values except binary objects are handed back as strings terminated by the zero character. This does also apply to numeric values, dates, etc. They have to be converted to their binary machine dependent representation before arithmetic operations can be done. If a value is undefined, i.e. "NULL" is attached to the field in the database, an equivalent NULL pointer is returned.
result parameter required by this function must be a valid result set returned by odbx_result() and must not has been feed to odbx_result_finish() before.
Valid column indices for the requested column provided via
pos start with zero and end with the value returned by odbx_column_count() minus one.
The function provides the address pointing to the beginning of the field value where the string or binary object is stored in memory to the caller. It returns a NULL pointer if the field is a "NULL" value.
This function will also return zero if the
result parameter is invalid or if the value of
pos is out of range.
