OTL 4.0, Example 531 (user defined string class and TEXTs, MS SQL Server)

This example demonstrates how to use a user defined string class (other than std::string) with the database large string table columns. The user defined string class should be compliant with the std::string, at least with some of the std::strng functions should exist in the user defined string class. See "class user_defined_string" in the example for more detail.
