Appendix J. Documentation

PostgreSQL has four primary documentation formats:

  • Plain text, for pre-installation information

  • HTML, for on-line browsing and reference

  • PDF, for printing

  • man pages, for quick reference.

Additionally, a number of plain-text README files can be found throughout the PostgreSQL source tree, documenting various implementation issues.

HTML documentation and man pages are part of a standard distribution and are installed by default. PDF format documentation is available separately for download.
