Hello everybody again,
I went out to investigate and try if I could master libpqxx, for libpq++
works not at all. Seeing it is discontinued, and people are encouraged to
use libpqxx, I was so bold as to try that ;-)
Only to discover that there is hardly any documentation on how to access
stuff... now I, myself am more a C-programmer, and I know C++ is pretty
much different... it is really hard for me to think in classes and stuff,
to think object-oriented...
So, now you know I am an earthling :P
I tried this kind of approach, the idea was to start out simple... so don't
laugh at the attempt ...
int main(int argc, char *argv)
char uname; // username
char passwd; // password
char host; //hostname
char passwd; //password
char dbase; //database name
... some output and input to get values for all these char arrays...
connstring = "host=" >> host >> "database=" >> dbase >> "username=" >>
uname >> "password=" >> passwd;
db = new Connection(connstring,true);
cout << "Connection succesful!" << endl;
cout << db->Options();
cout << "Something went wrong... oops" << endl;
I get my first errors at "Connection *db" declaration... there is no
Can anyone point out how to reference the classes libpqxx has?
Also I was curious if my connstring was correctly built, but that is
another subject I think... One other very important thing would be: how can
I find out the error PostgreSQL will throw at me when I did something ugly?
At least I can find out the problem, when I make one then...
