I'm trying my best to convert from MySQL to PgSQL but I cant get a good
certian questions. It was an easy task in mysql but all this talk about
, text , toast and bytea is just confusing me.
I cant get a clear picture of any of this,from the book from Bruce, the
e-mail archives. Ive looked all i can,
with every keyword i can think of from years past. Here is my situation.
WHAT I WAS DOING IN MYSQL
Via the web my clients are uploading basic text/data files, sometimes >
than 30MB. In the past ,via CGI I have been parsing the file
into one STL string, using mysql_escape_string to escape it and then using
an INSERT to place the
,\'+"stlstring+"\' , into a BLOB column.
I dont want to use a temp. file anywhere. The data will always be passed via
the database and buffers for certian reasons.
THIS IS WHAT I CANT SEEM TO FIGURE OUT IN POSTGRESQL
1. I cant get a clear answer on what kind of data type to use for my large
text string? TEXT, ???, ??? or something about TOAST
I have seen in the e-mail archive but cant find any documentaion?
2. I've written my own escape method ,("cant find one for Pgsql") , BUT i
don't know what
to escape and not to escape. So it keeps failing. I cand find any docs. on
what to escape either?
What datatype do I use? How Im a supposed to escape it and get it though the
parser correctly so i can
retrieve it correctly?
Thnks for your time.
PS: Using RedHat.
