Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to what if we adjust empty_string_p

Posted by David Richards on
Don, Michael, and Ben,

Thanks for your ideas.  I see the problem.  I like Ben's solution.  I was experiencing the problem in many places, which is why I thought I ought to just change the procedure to work for now.  However, it messes up other parts of the openACS (like the login), so I've undone my changes, and I live with the bugs, or fix them one at a time.  However, I agree that Michael's naming convention would make more sense if I were to be using this function in new development.

At the end of the day, if Postgres fixes this error, we'll all be better off.
