                        POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE

Your name		: Andreas Theofilu

System Configuration
- ---------------------
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)  	: Intel Pentium

  Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF) 	: Linux 2.2.7 ELF

  PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-6.5.1): PostgreSQL-6.5.1

  Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.8.0)		: egcs-2.91.66

Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
- ------------------------------------------------
There is a problem with 'ecpg'.

   EXEC SQL free <cursorname>

you can't compile the resulting c-file. 'ecpg' translates the above command

   { ECPGdeallocate (__LINE__, NULL, "<cursorname"); }

Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------
This can easily be fixed. Change line 988 of file
'postgresql-6.5.1/src/interfaces/ecpg/preproc/preproc.y' to

   fprintf (yyout, "{ ECPGdeallocate (__LINE__, \"%s\");", $1);

This fixed the bug here :-).
