       PX_create_fp — create a new Paradox file


       #include <paradox.h>

       int PX_create_fp(pxdoc_t *pxdoc, pxfield_t *fields, int numfields, FILE *fp, int type)


       Creates a new Paradox document in an already open file with the given field specification.
       pxdoc must be created before with PX_new(3) or PX_new2(3).  The file  must  be  opened  in
       read/write  mode  (w+) with fopen(3). fields is an array of numfields field specifications
       to set the schema of the database. The memory for the field specifications and field names
       must  be  allocated by the caller and may not be freed, since the memory is freed when the
       document is deleted. Make sure to use the same memory allocation  function  as  passed  to
       PX_new(3).  The  memory  for  the field names is usually allocated with PX_strdup(3).  The
       field name can be left empty if a primary index file is to be created.  The  type  of  the
       file  can  be  set  in  the  last  parameter.  Currently only database (pxfFileTypIndexDB,
       pxfFileTypNonIndexDB) and primary index (pxfFileTypPrimIndex) files are supported.

       After creating the paradox database you may want to call PX_set_tablename(3) in  order  to
       set the table name as it is stored in the header of the database.


       Returns 0 on success and -1 on failure.
