I'm currently running version 07_03_0200 of the Insight Distribution Systems
PostgreSQL Driver for windows. when I retrieve col1 string from the
database using: "SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE col1='hello\n'" the value
returned for col1 through the driver is "hello\r\n", and I want it to be as
it is stored in the database ('hello\n" with no \r). Is this a
configuration issue? If so, where can I change the configuration to ensure
that this conversion won't happen?
Thanx in advance for your help, amir
This is a mailing list thread I ran across that had the same problem. I
tried contacting Byron, but his email is no longer valid:

Actually, its LF to CR/LF when going from the database to odbc. When going
other way (odbc->database), it converts CR/LF to LF. The reason is for
Microsoft from what I remember. It might have even been in the odbc spec (I
can't quite remember). It probably shouldn't do it if its being run on

Good Job, you found a bug alright! It should be strlen(ptr). When I
it, I didn't have newlines so it worked ok.
I'll put it in for the next release.
