If PostgreSQL failed to compile on your computer or you found a bug that

is likely to be specific to one platform then please fill out this form
and e-mail it to pgsql-ports(at)postgresql(dot)org(dot)

To report any other bug, fill out the form below and e-mail it to
pgsql-bugs(at)postgresql(dot)org(dot)

If you not only found the problem but solved it and generated a patch
then e-mail it to pgsql-patches(at)postgresql(dot)org instead.  Please use the
command "diff -c" to generate the patch.

You may also enter a bug report at http://www.postgresql.org/ instead of

e-mail-ing this form.

                        POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE
============================================================================



Your name               : Jeff Davis
Your email address      : jdavis(at)wasabimg(dot)com


System Configuration
---------------------
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)         : Intel Pentium

  Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF)  : Linux 2.2.17 ELF

  PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-7.0):   PostgreSQL-7.0.3

  Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.8.0)           : gcc 2.95.2


Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
------------------------------------------------
I wished to perform a query that would involve boolean value addition
(i.e. true + false + true would equal 2 as an integer). The reason was
to keep track of the number of matches (i.e. if conditions are seperated
by "OR" and if row matches 3 conditions, it would have be moved higher
in the order than a row matching only two conditions).

I tried the procedure below to make the proper functions (as a user, not
a superuser) and the backend died. A full error log is at the end of
this email.
 Whenever I try to use my operator, it dies.



Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

create function bool_to_int(bool) returns int as 'select 1 as result
where $1 union select 0 as result where not $1;' language 'sql';

create function bool_plus_bool (bool,bool) returns int as 'select
bool_to_int($1) + bool_to_int($2) as result;' language 'sql';

create function int_plus_bool (int,bool) returns int as 'select ($1) +
bool_to_int($2) as result;' language 'sql';

create function bool_plus_int (bool,int) returns int as 'select
bool_to_int($1) + ($2) as result;' language 'sql';

create operator +( procedure = bool_plus_bool, leftarg = bool, rightarg
= bool);
create operator +( procedure = bool_plus_int, leftarg = bool, rightarg =
int);
create operator +( procedure = int_plus_bool, leftarg = int, rightarg =
bool);

select key,a,b,((key=1)+(a='hi')+(b='bye')) as m from v1; #kills backend

select (1=1)+(2=2) as a; #also kills backend

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry, I am not yet familiar enough with the internals.
