i am at the point in an app where i will be accessing a database (AISC steel section properties). will i need a seperate utilitie to open a database and access it by field name etc...
or does C++ have a library function that will allow searching a database by row or column.
i have no code to offer because i have no idea how this is even attempted.
int i_have _a_value()
look in the data base for 5 values
1 = i_have _a_value
2 = next_two_higher_values
2 = next_two_lower_values
retrieve the entire rows containing these values
} // or something like this
the data base will be several hundred rows and about 20 columns.
where do i start?
