Thank you Albe. I test your script using psql and it works as you found
out. If the function is correct. Now the problem is how to use the
function from client side. It could not use "<unnamed portal #>" kind of
thing from client. I tested the function using Npgsql connector and it
did not work. I got only thing like "43 | <unnamed portal 3> | <unnamed
portal 4>" returned as a single row to my .NET client. Any other clients
can use the function? Please advise.
