This documentation is for an unsupported version of PostgreSQL.
You may want to view the same page for the
version, or one of the other supported versions listed above instead.
* The SQL statement for creating a database is 'CREATE DATABASE' instead
of 'CREATEDB'. Similarly, dropping a database is 'DROP DATABASE' instead
of 'DESTROYDB'. However, the names of the executables 'createdb' and
'destroydb' remain the same.
* pgperl - a Perl (4.036) interface to Postgres95
* pg_dump - a utility for dumping out a postgres database into a
script file containing query commands. The script files are in a ASCII
format and can be used to reconstruct the database, even on other
machines and other architectures. (Also good for converting
a Postgres 4.2 database to Postgres95 database.)
The following ports have been incorporated into postgres95-beta-0.02:
* the NetBSD port by Alistair Crooks
