I decided to treat myself to some Free Software coding tonight, and you
lucky folks can reap the benefit. :-)
Version 0.1 of the packarray template class can be downloaded here:
This class provides an array-like interface to POD objects packed into
a std::string. I plan to integrate this into mysql++ eventually, and its
SSQLS system, but would like some feedback on what's there first.
This class will support any POD object: int, long, short, double, even structs
if they have endian conversion members.
Compile the code like this, to run the unit test:
g++ -Wall -D__TEST_MODE__ -o packarray packarray.cc
There are comments in the code which should explain things a little.
Once the ColData size bug is fixed, this class should slide right in. :-)
