I am trying to create a new index which is multidimensional (based on
R-Tree) which can be used for data warehosuing. I have read the Developers'
manual about adding new indexes, and now I want to start coding the new
My first step is to create the skeleton files, but I cannot compile Postgres
now because of errors. This is what I have done:
- Create a header file in /src/includes/
- Create a folder in /backend/access/ for the new index.
- Created a new C file in the above folder
- Copied a Makefile from the other access methods, and changed the
references to point to my C file
- Edited the /backed/access Makefile to include my new folder
I am using Eclipse on WindowsXP. Any pointers about what have I done wrong
or anything I missed?
