Subject CheckTransaction( ..., TranMode ...)
Author Geoff Worboys
Hi Jason,

I'm updating some old code to use the new IBO5 stuff and I'm
wondering about the TranMode parameter of the
TIB_Transaction.CheckTransaction method.

What is the intention of this parameter?

Being old code, it's not always easy to remember whether a
particular query, cursor or dsql is going to be used for
updates. It might only be being used for read now, but may
get used for updates elsewhere in the code. And, presumably,
just because this particular object calling CheckTransaction
is only doing reads it doesn't mean that there might not be
other objects connected to the same transaction. ... So I'm
not sure what the point it.
