Hi Magnus,

I understood that I am not supposed to know how PGresult stores the data, 
but I do not know how to fill my structure directly rather than to fill it 
field by field.
I saw ecpg gives methods to do this (with descriptors), but I do not 
understand all about it, and I think it is too complicated for my small 
needs. Further, I do not want to change the implementation of postgreqsl 

So if I have no other choice than convert all result fields to fill my 
structure I will do this ...

what is your advices about this ?

thanks a lot

You are not suppsed to know how PGresult stores the data, you are only
permitted to access it through the accessor functions. This is so it's
possible to change the underlying implementation without breaking your

You *can* access the data directly, all the rqeuired structs are in the
include files (but not in the libpq-fe.h file - you need the full
includes). I would stronly advise you not to, though.
