valtoa - convert value to ASCII string
char *valtoa (buf, type, size)
This function converts a binary value pointed to by buf to a character string. The type parameter names the data type of the data and is one of the data types named in the include file <cbase/dtypes.h>. The size parameter gives the size in bytes of the binary field that contains the value. The sizeof() function should be used to determine this value.
p = valtoa (&datefld, DATE_TYPE, sizeof(datefld));
p = valtoa (&count, INT_TYPE, sizeof(count));
p = valtoa (&links, INT_TYPE, sizeof(links));
p = valtoa (&amount, MONEY_TYPE, sizeof(amount));
The character string returned is contained in static data that is overwritten with every call.
