Hi, folks.

Such an unexpected situation.
Had a program that for certain reason needed to know number of records in a physical file.
Definitely there are many ways to do that.
I did it like this:

if ((fp1 = _Ropen(argv[1], "rr")) == NULL)
.... error message ....
return(0) ;
fb1 = _Ropnfbk (fp1);
_Rclose(fp1) ;

After that fb1->num_records contains a number of records in the file argv[1].
Worked fine with all needed files but 3. For them open fails. Looked inside - they contain either BLOB or CLOB fields of size ca 1MB.

Googled for a while but failed to find if it is possible to work with tables containing BLOB/CLOB fields from ILE/C without using embedded SQL.

Any idea?
