That was part of the one/two things I wanted to change before sending a fresh patch. > But also, on my platform (debian jessie), fwrite() returns size_t, and > write() returns ssize_t. So those are apparently both different from what > your platform does - which one did you get that one? It looks like I misread the macos man pages previously. Thay actually list ssize_t. I find a bit surprising the way gzwrite is designed. It uses an input an unsigned integer and returns to caller a signed integer, so this will never work with uncompressed buffers of sizes higher than 2GB. There's little point to worry about that in pg_receivexlog though, so let's just cast to ssize_t. Attached is a simplified new version, I have kept the file descriptor as originally done. Note that tests are actually difficult to work out, there is no way to run in batch pg_receivexlog.. -- Michael
