I really like this syntax! It's a nice way to get at information which
historically had been accessed by SQLCA. Just like GET DESCRIPTOR
encapsulates access to the SQLDA structure.
About two years ago, when I implemented get descriptor, get diagnostics
was not there (and the error suggests it's still the case).
Supporting this feature would be not that difficult to add: you can
follow the get descriptor design. [add keywords to scanner, add syntax
and generated code to yacc, add function to library] If you want to
implement it and need more information just ask me (or Michael Meskes).
But beware: You might soon run into the fact that SET DESCRIPTOR is not
yet there at all (as are query parameters). Or perhaps you might need
SQLDA (which never was implemented, too). But these are all shortcomings
that I'm aware of. Sadly C embedded SQL is not as popular as JDBC or
ODBC, so less people are enhancing it.
