I have a large database. I had PG 7.0. I did the data dump and got a 2.5 GB 
file. But when I tried to run psql with the new 7.1.2 I get a file to large 
error and nothing happens psql exits.

Is there a limit with psql? I am hoping it was compiled wrong. I insted from 
the binary RPMS for Mandrake 8.0.

I will try compiling the source and see if that fixes the problem.
Is there some way I could dump to two files? 
Do a dump on individual tables? pg_dumpall just does an SQL "COPY 
<table_name>  TO stdio" so is there and easy what I could write a bash script 
to do a dump like this for each table?  Then I could restore them one table 
at a time right?

I have no large object in the tables. Every thing should go to text easy. How 
would I get it back?
