It's common in English (not just the database jargon) to abbreviate "trans" by "x" . xlog went a bit far by abbreviating whole "transaction" by "x". But here "xact" means "transact", which is fine. May be we should use 'X' instead of 'x', I don't know. Said that, I am fine with any other name which conveys what the function does.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X -- Best Wishes, Ashutosh Bapat EnterpriseDB Corporation The Postgres Database Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
