Table 36.49. transforms Columns

Column Type

Description

udt_catalog sql_identifier

Name of the database that contains the type the transform is for (always the current database)

Name of the schema that contains the type the transform is for

udt_name sql_identifier

specific_schema sql_identifier

Name of the schema containing the function

specific_name sql_identifier

The specific name of the function. See Section 36.41 for more information.

group_name sql_identifier

The SQL standard allows defining transforms in groups, and selecting a group at run time. PostgreSQL does not support this. Instead, transforms are specific to a language. As a compromise, this field contains the language the transform is for.

transform_type character_data
