       PX_retrieve_record — Returns record in Paradox file


       #include <paradox.h>

       pxval_t ** PX_retrieve_record(pxdoc_t *pxdoc, int recno)


       Returns the record with the given number in a Paradox file. The first record has number 0,
       the last one has number_of_records-1.

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

       The return value is an array of field values. Each value is stored in a structure like the

       typedef struct px_val pxval_t;
       struct px_val {
       char isnull;
       int type;
       union {
       long lval;
       double dval;
       struct {
       char *val;
       int len;
       } str;
       } value;

       The element isnull is set to 1 if the value is  NULL  otherwise  it  is  set  to  0.  type
                      is  the  type  of the paradox field as defined in paradox.h.  A field value
       can be either a long int, a double or a string, depending on the paradox field  type.  The
       paradox  field  types  pxfShort, pxfLong, pxfDate, pxfTime, pxfLogical, and pxfAutoInc are
       returned as long int values.  pxfTimestamp, pxfNumber, and  pxfCurrency  are  returned  as
       double  values and all remaining paradox field types are stored as strings with the length
       in value.len. You can rely on strings being Null terminated. Blobs are  stored  as  string
       but are not guarented to be Null terminated.

       The paradox field types pxfTimestamp, pxfTime, an pxfDate use an uncommon format which can
       be  converted  into  a  string   with   PX_timestamp2string(3),   PX_time2string(3),   and


       Returns a pointer on success and NULL on failure.
