       PX_put_recordn — Stores record in Paradox file at certain position


       #include <paradox.h>

       int PX_put_recordn(pxdoc_t *pxdoc, char *data, int recpos)


       Stores  a record in the buffer data into a Paradox file at the given position recpos.  The
       first position has number 0. The function will determine the data block for  this  record.
       If  the  position  is  after the last data block, then as many as needed empty data blocks
       will be added.  If the position is in the middle of a data block and there  is  no  record
       right  before  the  position,  then the position will be recalculated to make sure the new
       record will be stored in the first free slot of the datablock. For example, if a datablock
       contains H records and the first call of PX_put_recordn wants to store a record at postion
       11, then this will be corrected to position H. PX_put_recordn will also add an empty  data
       block and store the record as the first record of the second data block.  Storing a second
       record at position 11 again, will be executed without any position change.

       data must be constructed with PX_put_data_xxx(3) functions  before.  It  is  of  the  same
       structure as the record returned by PX_get_record(3) and PX_get_record2(3).


       Returns the record position on success and -1 on failure. The first position has number 0.
