The libecpg library primarily contains "hidden" functions that are used to implement the functionality expressed by the embedded SQL commands. But there are some functions that can usefully be called directly. Note that this makes your code unportable.
ECPGdebug(int on, FILE
*stream) turns on debug
logging if called with the first argument non-zero. Debug logging
is done on stream. The log contains
all SQL statements with all the input
variables inserted, and the results from the
PostgreSQL server. This can be very
useful when searching for errors in your SQL
Note: On Windows, if the ecpg libraries and an application are compiled with different flags, this function call will crash the application because the internal representation of the FILE pointers differ. Specifically, multithreaded/single-threaded, release/debug, and static/dynamic flags should be the same for the library and all applications using that library.
const char* connection_name)
returns true if you are connected to a database and false if not.
connection_name can be NULL
if a single connection is being used.
