 * \brief Data structure that represents a result from a query.
 * Data structure that represents a result from a database query,
 * it also provides some convenience macros and some memory management
 * functions for result structures.

struct db_row;

 * This type represents a result returned by db_query function (see below). The 
 * result can consist of zero or more rows (see db_row_t description).
 * Note: A variable of type db1_res_t returned by db_query function uses dynamicaly
 * allocated memory, don't forget to call db_free_result if you don't need the
 * variable anymore. You will encounter memory leaks if you fail to do this!
 * In addition to zero or more rows, each db1_res_t object contains also an array
 * of db_key_t objects. The objects represent keys (names of columns). *
