I agree this is interesting information to get, but wonder how pg_config can know that and it looks to me that this information as nothing to do in pg_config.... pg_config is all about installation, socket_dir is a postgresql.conf setting. I'd prefer a 'pg_ctl status' output. > > regards, tom lane > > -- > Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) > To make changes to your subscription: > http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers > -- Cédric Villemain 2ndQuadrant http://2ndQuadrant.fr/ PostgreSQL : Expertise, Formation et Support -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
