Hi,
I would like to invoke some of the functions defined on some
user-defined types (i.e., the geometric type 'BOX') from a client-side
program written in C. I.e., I want to write something along the lines
of:

#include <postgres.h>
#include <utils/geo_decls.h>
#include <fmgr.h>

char bbox_string[500];
// process the string

BOX* __tmp;
Datum d = DirectFunctionCall1(box_in, BoxPGetDatum(bbox_string));
__tmp = DatumGetBoxP(d);

All this compiles ok, but I can't find which library to link in to get
the call to DirectFunctionCall1 recognised. Can anyone advise me on the
correct linkage procedure?

Many thanks,
-- 
Tony
