I am using the library C of the PostgreSQL "libpq" in some academic projects. I
am needing to recover the size of the resulting fields of a given
query so that, if necessary, I create a new table in another database or so that
my program has this information for posterior use.
Below, it is an example that I want to do
Given the tables:
T1(C1 VARCHAR(89), C2 NUMERIC(7,2))
1 - the user executes a consultation like:
SELECT C1 FROM T1, T2 WHERE T1.C2 = T2.C2 ORDER BY C1
2 - later he (or she) decides, inside of my program, to export the result for a
table of another database (like MySQL for example) => Then, I will have to know
the type (this libpq gives) and the size of each field so that I can create a
table in MySQL, in the case of this example, I will have to discover that the
field C1 of the table T1 is a varchar of length "89".
===> How could I get this length ?
Since now i thanks everybody, Gilberto.
