The issue has been raised a few times in the past but for reasons I forget, such an API has never been added :-( I'd be happy with: int PQmajorVer() int PQminorVer() Or something similar. It would also be handy to have something like PQhasKerberos()... Regards, Dave. ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 2: Don't 'kill -9' the postmaster
