Just wondering if it is possible to spawn a new database engine instance from within the c-api?
I want to be able to do something like this from within my application
dbspawn dbeng12 -n Test1 /Users/DCleyne/Test1.db
You can use the DBF connection parameter to specify the pathname to the database file and the client library will start an engine automatically if needed.
Also take a look at the START connection parameter.
This topic on locating a server in the docs also talk about auto-starting a database.
