Talk Description: Server side data manipulation in C
The common way to manipulate PostgreSQL data in C programming is to use
the libpq library, but this is a client-side approach. How about reading
and writing data at server side into C stored procedures or PostgreSQL
extensions? Two possibilities are offered to us, SPI and direct access
to data files with PostgreSQL. Most of the talk is about direct access
to data files.
