Also you would have to add conditionals for the the PG_RETURN_* and PG_GET* macros. > I'm asking because I have another 8-byte data type I want to use and it would > be nice to have that same property, assuming we have it for int8. Yes that'd be nice, but not entirely straightforward. Have a nice day, -- Martijn van Oosterhout <email@example.com> http://svana.org/kleptog/ > From each according to his ability.
