Why do we need to have similar functions in core and contrib? It will just confuse users. If you want to RAISE-version of format(), I don't want to have stringfunc in contrib. sprintf() is cool! So, I'd like to use sprintf() by default rather than format() which has limited features. Almost all users don't know well about contrib modules. Books about functions in inter-databases don't consider about postgres' contrib modules. That's why I want to move the useful features into core rather than contrib modules. -- Itagaki Takahiro -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
