API Method to Link Simple Products to Configurable Products

I’ve got the API setup so I can import all my different simple products and create a configurable product. However, which portion of the API allows me to link the simples to their configurable?

If there’s no way to accomplish this through the API, my fallback option is directly linking in the database. I’m prepared to spend a few hours to reverse-engineer the database so I can determine where to place the values, but it would be great if someone could tell me exactly where to place them.

Thanks.

I don’t know about the API—try using these queries, works for me:

OK.. thanks. Those queries get me started, but I still have to dig in and confirm those are the only ones I’ll need. I really don’t want to corrupt the database and not find out it had been corrupted until a few months down the road. With the database layout changing every few patches, I wouldn’t be surprised if those queries gave the appearance of “ALL-OK” only to bite you later.
