42.10. Environment Variables

Some of the environment variables that are accepted by the Python interpreter can also be used to affect PL/Python behavior. They would need to be set in the environment of the main PostgreSQL server process, for example in a start script. The available environment variables depend on the version of Python; see the Python documentation for details. At the time of this writing, the following environment variables have an affect on PL/Python, assuming an adequate Python version:

  • PYTHONHOME

  • PYTHONPATH

  • PYTHONY2K

  • PYTHONOPTIMIZE

  • PYTHONDEBUG

  • PYTHONVERBOSE

  • PYTHONCASEOK

  • PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE

  • PYTHONIOENCODING

  • PYTHONUSERBASE

  • PYTHONHASHSEED

(It appears to be a Python implementation detail beyond the control of PL/Python that some of the environment variables listed on the python man page are only effective in a command-line interpreter and not an embedded Python interpreter.)
