Hi Mike,

I am using Zoom.Net, and it took a long time before I created Zoom-C application to reproduce the problem.

Actually in C code I was not able to reproduce Access Violation error, but addinfo shows incorrect value anyway, which potentially can  causes memory corruption.
The test code returns:
CQL transformation error (10012) Too many characters in query (addinfo=H)

instead of expected (addinfo=512)

I've attached the sample code (if you want, it could be added to zoom tests folder, because I didn't find any sample code that calling ZOOM_query_cql2rpn).

Let me know, if mailing list doesn't allow to read attachments, and I will include it in the body of e-mail.

Hi, Michael.  It's not immediately obvious from reading the code where the problem is.  Please send a minimal ZOOM-C application that demonstrates the problem, and I'll see what I can do.
