I'm still trying to collect all the bits to be able to read and
return several types of data in C functions.
I'm looking for quick ways to deal with ArrayType.
I'd expect some helper because these kind of operation should be
frequent and without any helper (function/macro) they really make
the code awful.
Generally you work with C types that later you've to "convert" to
So for example you may have an array of int2 that then you've to
place into an ArrayType.
I think there are 3 kinds of operation you may have to do:
1 You may have an already "formed" C array type and you'd just copy
it into an ArrayType
2 You may know the # of elements of the C array type but you're
filling it an element at a time
3 You don't know the number of elements in the array in advance so
you'd like to append to the ArrayType one element at a time
1 seems to require
- creating an array of Datum
- looping over the C array
- assign to each Datum element the "converted" C value
- construct_array the Postgres array
That's a pain. Any other way? macro?
2 Seems the easiest
Is there any function in postgres that let you append elements to
