I don't think that's worth (a) the code uglification, or (b) the chance of a bug later due to someone not knowing they need the special version of stat(). Are there any stat() calls that are in sufficiently performance-critical paths that it really matters? How much slower is the second call, anyway? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-patches mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-patches
