PostgreSQL/libpqxx Class Generator

, 18 Aug 2006
Automated generation of PostgreSQL data transfer classes.
#pragma once

 stdafx.h  -  Standard precompiled header file. Things to observe are:
              (a) The definition of _WTL_NO_WTYPES and _WTL_NO_CSTRING.
			      These prevent confusion with the ATL and WTL types.
			  (b) The order of inclusions, particularly where atlstr.h is
			      included with respect to atlapp.h and atltypes.h.
			  (c) I've included PWinDataExchange.h which is my own
			      extended version of the DDX handling. In particular, it
				  implements DDX_Text for CURRENCY and COleDate time. It
				  also contains IMPLEMENT_COMBOTEXTEXCH which is a macro
				  that implements text exchange for combo boxes.
			  (d) The inclusion of <pqxx/pqxx> includes all the standard
			      headers for dealing with the libpqxx functionality.
			  (e) The Singleton template is included at the end. I lifted
			      this from someone ... I wish I could remember who!
		      (f) libpqxx doesn't like the min and max macros. These
			      need to be replaced by a couple of inline template
