I updated the tds.html about a month ago and the new version should
be in the CVS for freetds.

Hmm, it's easy so I'll put it up on my web address for you.

The return status packets are 4-byte ints that I believe provide
the return codes from stored procedures.  There's a sample in my
"Typical Usage sequences" section that may be helpful.
