Finally dbpre V 0.3 is released.
Unfortunately i had some trouble with KDESVN and messed up some files, which includes cobmysqlapi.c >.<

It's late at night and i don't want to install a 1.xx version and do the tests with that version, so, fingers crossed that it's working, I am going to check that during the next days.
Please report any bugs/problems/ideas in the forum here ("Discussion" at the top of the page).... read more
Finally the new version of cobmysqlapi.c, which can handle both GnuCobol 1.xx and 2.xx has passed the first tests (and so did my test program PCTB003B).
Which means, a few more tests with both compiler versions and maybe writing a little bit more of documentation, and we can have another release of dbpre soon.
Finally i had some spare time to work on dbpre again and was able to fix most of the errors Mario reported.
