Yeah, I think so. The PL/pgSQL debugger was part of a list of 14-15 features I gave Charles Babcock; not sure why he liked that one, but he did.

Last I talked to Korry, it was ready to go.  No?
If by "ready to go" you mean "has been exercised by a mess o' people", no.
If by "ready to go" you mean "has been tested by a few people and compiled on a few platforms", that's where we are now - I would like to see some more testing (especially on platforms other than Windows, Linux, and OS X).

The core of the debugger has been in use for quite some time, but I had to strip out a lot of EDB-specific code and I'd like to see that the result (the open-source version at pgFoundry) holds up well on other platforms.
Josh, any chance you could try it out on Solaris?

Looks great, and I'll be testing it shortly, but can I ask:
1. For 8.3 are we talking pgFoundry / contrib / core?
2. Would you accept an additional mode: logging?

It would be useful to be able to embed a couple of statements in
application to code to turn logging on/off at specific points in real
usage situations. Nothing as fancy as log4j/c/perl etc. just (timestamp,
facility, level, message) to a table.

SET plpgsql.logging_facilities='any,list,or,asterisk'
SET plpgsql.logging_levels='DEBUG,INFO'
SET plpgsql.logging_tablename='foo'

Hmm - tricky bit would presumably be the logging statement itself. Would
it be possible to keep the overheads low enough without interfering with
plpgsql itself?
