And all I can say is that there is no way the amount of grubbing about that's required to do something as fundamental as define your own, appropriate, data types in Ingres is acceptable. The data type of an attribute is the most basic constraint that can be applied, and it should be utterly straightforward to define the most appropriate types for the organisation being modelled. Pfaffing about with C does not count as straightforward.
