I have a question regarding the C-API or maybe even MySQL itself.

I would like to detect if my application hits the border of a column e.g. if a
field is defined as tinyint and the application tries to insert a value > 127.
MySQL cuts off this value and inserts/updates it as 127 but it would be nice if
there would be a way to detect that something went wrong.

Proofreading every statement isnt a very fast way to check if a value was cut
off or not. :-)
