Newbie C question:  What is the expected behavior
(using SQL embedded in a C program) of an insert when
the host variable is a null-terminated string? 
Regardless of the size of the host variable, the value
of the CNULRQD option (or the selection of
*CNULRQD/*NOCNULRQD on the compile), the type of the
table field (char or graphic), or the phase of the
moon -- or several other things I tried -- my result
is always blank-padded.  I am on a V5R1 machine (not
current on ptf's), but replicated this on a V5R3
   What I find odd is that I prototyped this in RPGLE
(with embedded SQL) and this does write nulls.
