The changes for ODBC are kinda small, but even so I think I will go with the
whole SVN thingie. That way I won't bother you with further additions or
corrections in case it does not work properly, or trashes the whole
Gambas-DB ecosystem... Call me paranoid, but I don't like to send a
component modification into the wild without testing it. It works in paper
and in C, but I could not yet test it as a proper Gambas component.

Just registered on SF, also as zxMarce. Do not grant me write access yet.
I'll do the mod checking out the current devel SVN branch (3.8.90) and if my
-limited- tests work, I'll ask you for write access.

I'll plan to do my changes on a local copy on a local virtual machine, so I
have both "user" and "devel" environments apart (two 32bit virtual
One question regarding this: My host is a 64bit Ubuntu 14.04. If I develop
on 32bit, will the module run in the 64bit host? (I presume it will not, but
not sure).

I expect to have the virtuals up in a coupla days time.

Thanks again,
