Bug reference:      5934
Logged by:          Frederic Junod
Email address:      frederic(dot)junod(at)camptocamp(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 8.4
Operating system:   debian squeeze
Description:        postgresql.conf: optional equal sign
Details: 

Hello,

According to [1], the equal sign between the key and the value is optional
but if I set:
  listen_addresses '*'
I get an error: 
"Error: Invalid line 502 in /etc/postgresql/8.4/main/postgresql.conf:
»listen_addresses  '*'«"

Looks like the equal sign is only optional for the include directive.

Regards,
fredj
