Subject:Re: ssqls and extend insert syntax? how?
View as plain text  
excellent!   Thank you William.

I incorporated this version in my program.  it's working like a charm.
 you know...  its very cool actually.  I don't know how I missed so
much while reading the manual.  I guess the first time I read through
section 5 I was looking for different information.  The more I mess
with ssqls structures, the more I appreciate them.

So, I read the fine manual again, and discovered Query::insertfrom()
which appears to do everything I want to do.  I like the design,
especially the InsertPolicy aspect.  I tried to make it work, but I
seem to have an older version of the library installed...  which so
far doesn't have insertfrom().  Oh well.  My server's default
max_packet_size is 16MB, and if I hit that limit then I have bigger
problems with which to contend.  so, Query::insert(begin, end) it is.
I will perhaps download the latest version to else it has to offer.

My second attempt involved filling a std::set with my ssqls
structs....  then passing the set::begin() and set::end() iterators to
the insert.  I ran into a compile time error.  Just out of curiosity,
I modified query.h a little, and found that this tiny change is enough
to make it work.

--- query.h	2011-07-05 16:43:30.000000000 -0700
+++ query1.h	2011-07-05 16:44:19.000000000 -0700
@@ -1006,7 +1006,8 @@
 				first->field_list() << ") VALUES (" <<
 				first->value_list() << ')';

-		Iter it = first + 1;
+		Iter it = first;
+		it++;
 		while (it != last) {
 			MYSQLPP_QUERY_THISPTR << ",(" << it->value_list() << ')';

that's all.  it appears, I think(?), that the "first + 1" is enough to
force the requirement of a random access iterator.  replacing it with
++ enables the use of the less feature-full iterator associated with a

All the same...  I certainly am not in the habit of altering library
files.  And, I bet there's a better way to do what I was trying to do

std::set is, however, definitely the best option for storing rows
prior to insertion, for my programming purposes at least.  The
std::set features are compelling enough, and the library change is
inconsequential enough, that I am actually considering sticking with
this little change.  I do not want the headache that will come with
maintenance.  hm....  a conundrum.  I think I'll download the latest
version of the library to see if it will work better for me.
