Hi all,

I'm looking at the latest docs for PostgreSQL 9.0
(http://developer.postgresql.org/pgdocs/postgres/streaming-replication.html)
and under the description of primary_conninfo, there's a link to
section 30.1 (http://developer.postgresql.org/pgdocs/postgres/libpq-connect.html)
which is supposed to describe the string format.  Having looked at
that page, however, it's not crystal clear what is meant by this
string format.  One can only assume it's referring to the
PQconnectdbParams section and the keywords that can be used for it,
which would also apply to a connection string, but there's no mention
of a "format" on that page.

I'm wondering if there should be another area added to the
documentation which simplifies this information, or at least presents
it differently, so that it isn't only within the context of the libpq
C library.  Either that, or clarify what information should be gleaned
from the page being linked to.

Thanks

Thom
