Subject: [NOVICE] PostgreSQL Guide for Oracle Users?
> I have been using Oracle for years, but have just
> started with PostgreSQL. I've downloaded & installed
> the software (v8.0.2), and I'm slowing reading my way
> through the manual.
> Is there any sort of documentation, or a FAQ, or
> tips/tricks, or just anything that shows differences
> between Oracle and PostgreSQL? Either from a DBA or
> from a programmer point of view?
> Is there something somewhere that will help people
> familiar with Oracle learn what to do (and also what
> not to do) in PostgreSQL? For example, it appears
> that a transaction in PostgreSQL must start with the
> BEGIN keyword, whereas Oracle implicitly begins a
> transaction with the first SQL statement issued when
> you log into the database.
> Is there anyplace to look for any sort of "PostgreSQL
> Guide for the Oracle User"?
> Do you Yahoo!?
> Plan great trips with Yahoo! Travel: Now over 17,000 guides!
