( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

thanks karlgoethebier! I was not aware of this. PL/Perl can return hashrefs and arrayrefs too! This removes a lot of boilerplate from scripts and puts it exactly where it belongs to: in the guts and out of sight.

Update: the following caveat does not apply to the recent versions of PL/Python. See nodes below.

On the other hand, it offers something similar for python but with this caveat:

As of PostgreSQL 7.4, PL/Python is only available as an "untrusted" language, meaning it does not offer any way of restricting what users can do in it. It has therefore been renamed to plpythonu. The trusted variant plpython might become available again in future, if a new secure execution mechanism is developed in Python. The writer of a function in untrusted PL/Python must take care that the function cannot be used to do anything unwanted, since it will be able to do anything that could be done by a user logged in as the database administrator. Only superusers can create functions in untrusted languages such as plpythonu.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
