Tom, thank you for that pointer. I get now that it is not free and therefore why its not something that should be changed by default.
I guess the problem is 'build your own copy' (i.e. compiling from source) is something that sends most DB teams running into the hills. A solution might be to make NAMEDATALEN configurable without having to recompile source (perhaps a config variable or an initdb parameter). When I have some free time I will investigate whether this is doable. -- View this message in context: http://www.postgresql-archive.org/Revisiting-NAMEDATALEN-tp5969858p5970351.html Sent from the PostgreSQL - hackers mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
