Right, but I think it ought to be Catalog.pm's job to parse the config file. The job of complaining about what it contains is a job worth doing, but it's not the same job. Personally, I hate it when parsers take it upon themselves to do semantic analysis, because then what happens if you want to write, say, a tool to repair a broken file? You need to be able to read it in without erroring out so that you can frob whatever's busted and write it back out, and the parser is getting in your way. Maybe that's not going to come up here, but I'm just explaining my general philosophy on these things... -- 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
