have you looked in the contrib directory (Postgresql 7.4.6). I just checked and the dbmirror/pending.c looks like
some good code to follow.

Subject: [INTERFACES] Question about accessing current row data inside trigger
> *previously posted this to pgsql-general*
> -I have a trigger function written in C.
> -The trigger function is called via:
> -CREATE TRIGGER after_update AFTER UPDATE ON some_table
> - FOR EACH ROW EXECUTE PROCEDURE my_trigger_function();
> - Since the trigger is called after each row update the actual
> -row data
> -should be available in some way to the trigger.
> - What functionality (SPI ?) do I use to use the column values -from the
> -current row in the actual trigger?
> - Does SPI_cursor_fetch automatically give me the current trigger -row or
> -do I need to query again for the proper row?
> -thanks for any insight,
> I am now using :
> TupleTableSlot *t = (TupleTableSlot *) PG_GETARG_POINTER(0);
> bool isnull;
> char *buffer=(char *)DatumGetPointer(GetAttributeByName(t,
> "some_column_name", &isnull));
> The pointer always comes back NULL though there is data
> in the column.
> I'm still not sure this is the correct way to access
> the data from the updated row.
> Is this the correct way to get a string back from
> the data in the column named 'some_column_name'?
> Do I have the correct TupleTableSlot pointer?
> Thanks for any insight,
