Good idea. If anyone want so pursue it, I'd strongly suggest building it as a contrib module rather than dedicated syntax, because I'm not sure there'd be any consensus on adding syntax for it to core. Actually, though, I wonder how much faster it would be than CREATE TABLE AS? Block-level copy should be faster than tuple-level copy, but I'm not sure whether it would be a lot faster or only slightly faster. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
