I am having a problem in running some code in 64 bit unix. I'm running
unixODBC and psqlodbc-08.00.0005 on SuSE 9.1 x86-64.

If I bind a 32 bit integer using SQL_INTEGER/SQL_C_LONG and pass a value
of -1, the insert fails with an 'integer out of range' error. The
reason this happens is the sprintf near line 2658 of convert.c.

case SQL_C_LONG:
sprintf(param_string, "%ld",
*((SDWORD *) buffer));

How should this be fixed? Should SQL_C_LONG/SQL_C_SLONG be identified
with the native C long of the compiler? On Linux/GCC long is 64 bits.
On Windows 64, I believe a long will remain 32 bits.

It seems nicer to me to reserve SQL_C_LONG/SLONG for 32 bit ints and use
SQL_C_SBIGINT/SQL_C_UBIGINT for 64 bit ints.

An alternative approach would be to use:


to select an appropriate sprintf.

What do you ODBC experts consider an appropriate approach.
