Correct; what I'm saying is that we don't need core API support for zero based array indexing. A hypothetical extension could give 100% function based support for that so that equivalents to all functions are given: array_upper, array_lower, etc etc etc. You are correct that it could not implement alternative syntactical array features. merlin -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
