Normally in table->record,
The exception is in case of 'summary records', like those generated by
the seoond phase of "select field,count(*) from table group by field".
For the second phase there is no easy way for you to get access to
other rows, but that shouldn't be relevant for you.
Michael-> The record data is normally in table->record_buffer. The length of this
buffer is table->reclength.

Yes. table->s is a shared structure that holds all constants that are
equal for two table objects from the same table.
