It is once you consider error handling and catering to N combinations of user requirements. I think the notion that we should get rid of archive_command in favor of something more hard-wired is sheer lunacy. We have a nicely decoupled arrangement for dealing with these issues now; why would we want to pull them into the server? Now, providing a more useful sample script is certainly reasonable. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
