I'm trying my best to convert from MySQL to PgSQL but I cant get a good
clear answer about
certian issures.Mainly TEXT, TOAST,BLOB , BYTEA etc.
It was an easy task in mysql but everything in the archives about , text ,
toast and bytea is just
confusing me with postgresql. I have Bruces's book and I've searched the
archives years back with all the right keywords with not luck.Here is my

what to escape either?
What is the best datatype to use, for large raw text and/or binary if i
Once I know this,how Im a supposed to escape my string and get it through
the parser correctly so i can retrieve it correctly?
Thanks for your time.
