Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to PostgreSQL Large Object functionality

Posted by Titus Brown on
Understood - I would presume, though, that much of the same
functionality/interface (at least through the psql functions)
will be preserved?  (I wouldn't expect the C functions to
remain the same.)

I wrote this code because I needed to use it for a project I'm working on -- DNA sequences can go over a million bytes -- so I will happily
commit to adapting the code to newer versions of PostgreSQL, once
they're out.  (Since the project needs to be marginally stable I
don't want to commit to writing it for the beta versions of PG.)

I would also welcome comments on the interface - I'm relatively new at this stuff, and as long as I'm writing it I might as well put a bit more effort in and make it useful and extensible.
