This is my impression too: in postgresql-6.3.2/src/interfaces/libpgtcl/
there are C files which reference functions like PQconnectdb. However,
the documentation for libpgtcl states (this is from the top of
pgtcl is a tcl package for front-end programs to interface with
<ProductName>Postgres</ProductName> backends. pgtcl does not use
the libpq library but communicates to the backend directly via the
frontend-backend protocol. Thus, it is more efficient than previous
postgres->tcl bindings which are layered on top of libpq. In
addition, pgtcl can handle multiple backend connections from a
single frontend application.
The documentation looks wrong, or perhaps it is talking about a
development version of libpgtcl? Should I report a documentation bug?
