It looks like that compiler adheres to the C89 restriction that an initializer for an array or struct must contain only link-time-constant expressions, even if the target object is of dynamic scope. The macro works with a link-time-constant pointer argument, but not with one that must be evaluated at runtime. 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
