I am trying to create a function, and I am getting the following error
message:

ERROR:  Unrecognized language specified in a CREATE FUNCTION:
'plpgsql'. Recognized languages are sql, C, internal and the created
procedural languages.

This is the text of the function:


CREATE FUNCTION rational (int1, int2) RETURNS text AS '
DECLARE
	numerator ALIAS FOR $1;
	denominator ALIAS FOR $2;
	txtRational text;
BEGIN
	txtRational := to_char(numerator,''999999'');
	RETURN txtRational;
END;
' LANGUAGE 'plpgsql';


This is my first function, and obviously it isn't complete yet. It is
supposed to take two integer values, used to store the numerator and
denominator of a rational value, and return it as a string in the form
'numerator/denominator' when it is finished.

Any help much appreciated.

tia,
David
