Hmm ... as I was reading through the email thread, I saw a suggestion was once made to look at ltree, and then I noticed the patch as presented had simply gone with regular expressions instead. I wonder if there'd be a way to work it so an operator can be specified, and allow you to treat the names as (say) ltree labels if that suited your application. -Chap -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
