I would like to be able to query some systems table or view to
obtain the creation data of a table. INFORMATION_SCHEMA does not seem
to record this information. Does postgres store it somewhere?
I need this for a PHP/postgres application which creates temporary
tables which should be cleaned up when my application finishes. But
sometimes they aren't., so I have to write code to find these tables and
drop them. There is a better solution -- to use CREATE TEMPORARY
TABLE. But to do this I would have to use PHP persistent data base
connections which, unlike the ordinary connections which my application
currently uses, drop and recreate connections when I move from one page
Changing means a significant code rewrite. I could, of course, encode
the creation date into the name of the table.
But I would like to know how to find the creation date of a table.
Thanks in advance
