Guys, it has nothing to do with my question :D
I don't know why Martin answer to me anything about Cobol.
I just was looking how to query database in a stored procedure in C. Some
people pointed me to SPI documentation (at chapter 41 of oficial Postgres
documentation) that is being useful.
Thanks for worry about it :)
