NAME

       SPI_fnumber - determine the column number for the specified column name

SYNOPSIS

       int SPI_fnumber(TupleDesc rowdesc, const char * colname)

DESCRIPTION

       SPI_fnumber returns the column number for the column with the specified
       name.

       If  colname  refers to a system column (e.g., oid) then the appropriate
       negative column number will be returned. The caller should  be  careful
       to test the return value for exact equality to SPI_ERROR_NOATTRIBUTE to
       detect an error; testing the result for less than or equal to 0 is  not
       correct unless system columns should be rejected.

ARGUMENTS

       TupleDesc rowdesc
              input row description

       const char * colname
              column name

RETURN VALUE

       Column  number  (count  starts  at  1), or SPI_ERROR_NOATTRIBUTE if the
       named column was not found.
