I really think resultset handling is the most important ODBC problem. I
haven't been able to work on it, but it really needs to be done and it
would be great if you took it on.
If you don't want to -- or if you don't like the way I described it --
that's OK, too. For me, though, it's the *only* thing we need for 0.65.
We need a tds_read_results() function in src/tds/api.c ;-) that reads
*everything* after the last ROW token (if there is one) up to the next
result (if any). That way, the client app can pull the extra bits --
COMPUTE, RETURN_STATUS, etc. -- in any order he wants to from the ODBC
To write that function correctly, we need to deal with server messages
(and some client messages). Message handling has been a problem in ODBC
from the beginning. :-( I think this is the only way to fix it.
 Other volunteers welcome, too, naturally. That's what's made the
project what it is.
