PX_put_data_bcd(3) Put value into a bcd data field

SYNOPSIS

#include <paradox.h>

void PX_put_data_bcd(pxdoc_t *pxdoc, char *data, int len, char *value)

DESCRIPTION

Converts a bcd string into a value for a data field as it stored in the database file. The string may only contain the charcters `+', `-', `0-9', and `.'. You should use this function instead of accessing the record data directly.

data points to the start of the data field in the record. It must be calculated by summing up all field length before the field to operate on and add it to the base pointer of the record.
