Yeah, fair. I think it depends on whether you think it is more likely that people will (a) grep for PG_INT_MIN32 to find places where we do overflow handling or (b) observe the close relationship between the two constants on adjacent lines. Probably I should have waited for comments before committing, but I figured we wanted to avoid hardcoded constants and didn't think much further. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
