thanks for the answer.
It is very interest, because I readet many times that if I write the trigger
in "C" it will work faster.
In wich case will this trigger work faster if write it in "C"?
In all my triggres I have "select ...." or "insert into mytable select ..."
or "update mytable set ...where...".
I need this info because I have a table with ~1.5 M rows and if I start to
update 300 K from this rows it takes ~ 2h.
If I remove the trigger for this table all the time is ~ 1 min.

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
      joining column's datatypes do not match
