       PX_get_record2 — Returns record in Paradox file


       #include <paradox.h>

       int  PX_get_record2(pxdoc_t *pxdoc, int recno, char *data, int *deleted, pxdatablockinfo_t


       This function is similar to PX_get_record(3) but takes two extra parameters.  If  *deleted
       is  set  to  1 the function will consider any record in the database, even those which are
       deleted. If *pxdbinfo is not NULL, the function will return  some  information  about  the
       data  block  where  the  record  has  been read from. You will have to allocate memory for
       pxdbinfo before calling PX_get_record2.

       On return *deleted will be set to 1 if the requested record is deleted or 0 if it  is  not
       deleted. The struct pxdatablockinfo_t has the following fields:

       blockpos (long)
                 File  positon  where  the block starts. The first six bytes of the block contain
                 the header, followed by the record data.

       recordpos (long)
                 File position where the requested record starts.

       size (int)
                 Size of the data block without the six bytes for the header.

       recno (int)
                 Record number within the data block. The first record in the block has number 0.

       numrecords (int)
                 The number of records in this block.

       number (int)
                 The number of the data block.

       This function may return records with invalid data, because  records  are  not  explizitly
       marked  as deleted, but rather the size of a valid data block is modified. A data block is
       a fixed size area in the file which holds a certain number of records. If for some  reason
       a  data  block  has  newer been completely filled with records, the algorithmn anticipates
       deleted records in this data block, which are not there. This often happens with the  last
       data block in a file, which is likely to not being fully filled with records.

       If  you  accessing  several  records,  do  it in ascending order, because this is the most
       efficient way.


              This function is deprecated.  Use PX_retrieve_record(3) instead


       Returns 0 on success and -1 on failure.
