I think I'm getting a bit lost, too--that last post reads like a children's song: "OID kudra had a db, OI-OI-D!"

Yes, there is an OID which Postgre assigns to each row.
Yes, there is also an OID type which you can assign to a column.

If you look in a table containing an OID column, you will see a number which was created by pg, which lets it know how to find the large object data. You don't create the number, you just give it the data and it uses the number for itself. My problem is with inserting the data.

Update: Just a few details from various chatterbox discussions:
I'm using OID because that's the postgres implementation of BLOB. I can't use TEXT, which is limited by pagesize (as far as I know, and I have looked).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
