While I'm not particularly excited about fixing PREPARE ... SELECT INTO or CREATE RULE ... SELECT INTO, I've come to the conclusion that the EXPLAIN case is a must-fix. Because not only is EXPLAIN SELECT INTO broken, but so is EXPLAIN CREATE TABLE AS, and the latter functionality is actually documented. So presumably somebody went out of their way to make this work, at some point. Since I've got the table-creation code moved into intorel_startup, this doesn't look to be that painful, but it will require an API change for ExplainOnePlan, which is slightly annoying because that's probably in use by third-party plugins. We could either break them obviously (by adding an explicit parameter) or break them subtly (by adding an ExplainState field they might forget to initialize). The former seems preferable. 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
