Set the high-order 4 bytes of an 8-byte record address.
NINT ctSETHGH(LONG highword)
Call ctSETHGH() before a routine requiring a record address as an input parameter to set the high word value for the function.
To minimize the effect on performance in client/Server environments, ctSETHGH() does not make a separate call to the FairCom Server. Instead, the information supplied by ctSETHGH() is cached on the client side.
ctSETHGH() always returns NO_ERROR (0). See FairCom DB Error Codes for a complete listing of valid FairCom DB error values.
/* Assumes a key length of 14 (8 bytes for HUGE duplicate support) */
keyval = "123456";
/* Remember, the high word counts the number of 4GB multiples contained **
** in the composite 8 byte record address. Therefore, recadr_hw = 2 and **
** recadr_lw = 512 means a record address of 8,589,935,104 */
recadr_hw = 2;
recadr_lw = 512;
/* set higher order 4 bytes of record address */
if (AddKey( /* add key value to index */
9, /* index file number */
keyval, /* pointer to key value */
recadr_lw, /* lower order 4 bytes of record address */
REGADD /* regular add mode */
printf("\nAddKey error = %d", uerr_cod);
The recbyt parameter in this function is a 4-byte value capable of addressing at most 4 gigabytes. If your application supports HUGE files (greater than 4 gigabytes), you must use the ctSETHGH() and ctGETHGH() functions to set or get the high-order 4 bytes of the file offset.
