It would be nice if I could do so, but at least with 'ecpg' I can't realy
do this. As already written, if I quote the apostrophes with a backslash
(that\'s), I get the run time error "too many arguments in line xxx". The
same happens if I don't quote at all. Only quoting the apostrophe with an
apostrophe gives no runtime error, but then I have the two apostrophes in
the database. This is not what I expected.
While playing around with ecpg I'm sure now, that 'ecpg' does something
wrong here. The problem is in the library 'libecpg.so'. I will try to find
out the error...
