Hi!
Can anybody tell me what the difference between postmaster and posgresql is?
More accurately, what's the difference between running the following 
commands?

/usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data >logfile 2>&1 &

and

/etc/init.d/postgresql start


Thanks a lot in advance!

Agustin
