Hi,

I have discovered that in pl/perl we cannot make use of file handling.
The README file in ../pl/plperl give us an hint with an example of a
badfunc().
What are the security reasons to do so, since with postgresql extensions
(functions) written in C language we can do anything with flat files ?
Can this security issue with pl/perl be overrided ?
If so, how can i hack it ?
It will be so nice to manage files from server-based functions written in
pl/perl.
Thanx

Hugo Longo
