Greetings,

Can someone help me with the syntax for running a postgres function  
from the within psql?  I need to know the size of several databases.   
The postgres documentation says there is a function that will do what  
I need.  The function is pg_database_size(name).  I tried select  
pg_database-_size(km).  The response I get says there is no column  
"km".  I think I must be using the wrong syntax, but haven't found a  
reference to what the correct syntax is.

Thanks,
Carol Walter
