Re: GDA_Date??

BTW, Vivien, where are the conversion routines (ie. converting from
Postgres types to GDA and back? I tried to find them to see how they did
it, and couldn't find them.) ?

Also, is there a definitive list of what functions do what (ie.
gda_mysql_connectdatabase is a public function, and does yadayada, but
gda_mysql_foo_bar is a private function specific to mysql, and does
whatever the author made it do)? I'm wondering because I'd like to document
and/or know what the functions in the mysql server do, and I understand
some of them, but not all of them yet. Just wondering here.
