I am implementing some functionality into Postgresql, where I want to
track which row was accessed by a user query. I am implementing the
functionality inside Postgres, so that there are no changes required
on client side (e.g. re-writing queries).
Rows are identified by OIDs, and I have set default_with_oids=true, so
that all tables are created with OIDs.
Now, when I run a 'select * from my_table', I can easily get the OID
inside the executor because I get a 'HeapTuple' from ExecSan(). I call
HeapTupleGetOid() on the heap tuple and I have the oid.
The problem is that when I run a query with a projection, e.g.,
'select name from my_table', then the scanner returns a null
HeapTuple. How can I get the OID in such a case?
What would be the best way of doing this? Should I modify the planner
to add 'get oid' as a junk filter? Would it affect something else?
Any comments will be highly appreciated.
