Subject API XSQLVAR struct ?
Author William L. Thomson Jr.
I am a bit confused here. Please excuse my lack of knowledge when it
comes to C/C++.

I am working with some modified API examples to better understand how to
work with FB using C++.

I am pretty confused about the


In the ibase.h file it says it's the address of the data.
Defined as a char ISC_FAR *sqldata;

First of what is ISC_FAR.

It seems as though things work the same with or without it, and it is
defined in the header file, but has no value.

Further more why is the only way to retrieve the actual data is by using
a struct with a var inside the struct to get the data from the position
in the row?

Is there another way. All my experiments with other ways have failed so
