This page is part of the book SQL-99 Complete, Really, by Peter Gulutzan & Trudy Pelzer. The authors have graciously allowed us to reproduce the contents of the book here. Because the book is about the SQL-99 standard, the contents of this and other pages in the book may not directly apply to MariaDB. Use the navigation bar to navigate the book.
All CLI functions return a 16-bit value. We refer to this value as the
SQLRETURN value because
sqlcli.h contains this line:
typedef SQLSMALLINT SQLRETURN;
In standard SQL there are only six possible SQLRETURN values:
|"success with info".|
Programs should check these values, but for space reasons we leave
SQLRETURN out of many of our examples.
