Hi Warren and thanks for looking in to this - and for posting the
program's output. As you say, it performs perfectly.
I've since done some more tests, but still observe that the NOW()
function is being quoted - as in 'NOW()' - on my server. Quoting a
function will of course demote it to a simple text field which the
MySQL engine will ignore.
I can only suggest that there is either an error in the current
release of MySQL++, or that something went wrong when whoever ported
MySQL++ to the Debian 5.0 platform. Meanwhile, and admitting that I'm
still learning how to use SQL effectively, I've decided to change my
timestamp fields to datetime and set them by hand to UTC system time.
One more thing... I'm using a very wide diamond shaped class
structure and finding it difficult to distribute the SSQLS
declarations in a logical way. I've finished up having to put them
all into one global file - not very modular at all. So, I'm asking if
anyone can recommend an implementation guide I could read.
