I had a quick look in things. I think it's a great learning material for pg 

I have a suggestion. In README, it should be worth mentioning that, new types 
can be added just by changin Makefile. e.g. Changing line

OBJS = char3.o char4.o char10.o


OBJS = char3.o char4.o char5.o char10.o 

would add the datatype char5 as well. 

Obviously this is for those who might not take efforts to read the source. ( 
Personally I wouldn't have, had it been part of entire postgres source dump. 
Just would have done ./configure;make;make install)

Thanks for the solution. It wouldn't have occurred to me in ages to create a 
type for this. I guess that's partly because never used postgresql beyond 
select/insert/update/delete. Anyway should have been awake..

Thanks once again


But it's real.  And if it's real it can be affected ...  we may not be ableto 
break it, but, I'll bet you credits to Navy Beans we can put a dent in it.
