Inserting into a table [adpoci example]

Here's a programm that inserts some data in the table created with create_table. After filling the table, use select_table to select from the table.
This programm uses adpoci to make it work.
Be sure to first compile and link the library into a shared library or dll.
After doing so, the programm can be compiled and linked like so
On Linux with gcc:
gcc -I$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo -I$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/public insert_table.c -o insert_table -L. -L$ORACLE_HOME/lib -ladpoci -lclntsh
On Windows with mingw:
gcc -Wall -I%ORACLE_HOME%/oci/include insert_table.c adpoci.dll %ORACLE_HOME%/bin/oci.dll -o insert_table.exe


./insert_table username/password@db
