I've started to look at postgreSQL for a potential rdbms platform to
move our development to. However, i have found one slight short-coming
I seems that multiple inserts are not supported by postgres:
INSERT INTO test VALUES (
'one', 1, 2, 3
'two', 2, 3, 4
. -- you get the idea
. -- now imagine a hundred or so of these
'ten', 10, 11, 12
will generate the following error:
ERROR: parser: parse error at or near ","
Is this type of insert not supported at all?
I did a search through the mailing lists (namely pgsql-sql and
pgsql-general). Admittedly the search wasn't exhaustive but i was
unable to 'hit' on any relevant topic.
Could someone please clarify whether or not multiple-inserts are planned
for a near-future release? Pointers to documentation and/or
mailing-list discussions would be appreciated.
