Considering we have 2756 lines of Python test SQL and just thirteen lines of sed to mangle them, the current method is scaling nicely. > 2.

Our current build systems, the src/tools/msvc system and the GNU make system, have that flexibility. We could port regress-python3-mangle.mk to Perl and run it on Windows; it just hasn't been a priority. > Yes, we will have 2 times more similar code but you need to relates to the > python2 and python3 as the different languages. The PL/Python implementation does not view them as different languages; the bulk of its code is the same for both python2 and python3. We'd want almost the same test cases in both suites. Maintaining a single, adaptable test suite is cheaper than forking that suite. nm -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
