This is actually something they are working on right now. One thing to remember is that for quite a while now mysql has had a corporate entity behind it that can spend money on marketing efforts -- postgresql doesn't have this since Great Bridge went away... > Plus, as others have pointed out, the supporting functions in PHP aren't > as powerful/diverse. For example, there's no insert id function. There are sequences however... which once you use them for awhile you'll hate the way MySQL does it. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
