Thanks. The CRUD functionality is exactly what I want to do.

So maybe I should ask the group this:

-What is everyone using to accomplish this? I mean, are most people just
hand coding this stuff?  It's so much easier to have a generator do it and
then just tweak the code as needed, add a stylesheet, etc.

My issue is that that I will probably have to do Postgres work like this in
the future so I don't want to have to repeat this same generic task for each
job that comes up.  A generator would just be nice and it'd be one less
argument against psql for the mysql-nazis. :)

Thanks,

Aaron

You might want to check out PHPLens (http://phplens.com/), which uses
ADODB to support multiple DBMS's. This is a commercial PHP toolkit, though.

I don't know of a free PostgreSQL-specific kit for this, but there are a
couple excellent PEAR (http://pear.php.net) classes for form generation
(HTML_QuickForm) and table generation (HTML_Table). With these, it's
really not too hard to automate a lot of the work of standard CRUD
database interaction.
