Information about runtime error: cgo argument has Go pointer to Go pointer

var out api.SQLHANDLE
ret := api.SQLAllocHandle(api.SQL_HANDLE_DBC, api.SQLHANDLE(d.h), &out)
if IsError(ret) {
return nil, NewError("SQLAllocHandle", d.h)
h := api.SQLHDBC(out)

In the above code i have created h varaiable using cgo. I did not use to release the memory but it works fine.

Where i have to change the Code:- (In Bind func or in SQLBindCol func)

func (l *BufferLen) Bind(h api.SQLHSTMT, idx int, ctype api.SQLSMALLINT, buf []byte) api.SQLRETURN {
        return api.SQLBindCol(h, api.SQLUSMALLINT(idx+1), ctype,api.SQLPOINTER(unsafe.Pointer(&buf[0])), api.SQLLEN(len(buf)),(*api.SQLLEN)(l))

func SQLBindCol(statementHandle SQLHSTMT, columnNumber SQLUSMALLINT, targetType SQLSMALLINT, targetValuePtr SQLPOINTER, bufferLength SQLLEN, vallen *SQLLEN) (ret SQLRETURN) {
        r := C.SQLBindCol(C.SQLHSTMT(statementHandle), C.SQLUSMALLINT(columnNumber), C.SQLSMALLINT(targetType), C.SQLPOINTER(targetValuePtr), C.SQLLEN(bufferLength), (*C.SQLLEN)(vallen))
        return SQLRETURN(r)


@NobbZ can you help me on this.


Please stop mentioning me out of nowhere, if I were able to help, I had already tried much earlier.

Ok sorry.

Hi, @akhilravuri, I did some searching for that error message and I came across this post (and specific comment):

The way I’m skimming over this, it looks to me like it might work for you if you move the unsafe.Pointer(&buf[0]) into the cgo call (i.e. from (*BufferLen).Bind to SQLBindCol).

It’s working.
Thanks @skillian
