Thanks for the reply.
I think I understand what you mean, I just thought that instead of a file
input, we could have a pipe input.
It runs on a SuSE linux 6.4 (you may ask why this old version, I updated what
was necesary, I like it becouse I have full greek support) and the archiver
is an old conner DDS-2 scsi tape streamer which is known on the operating
system as /dev/st0 by the kernel whith a symbolic link to /dev/rmt0.
When I pg_dump on a file, of cource there's no problem. I restore also
But I would like to pipe this procces. For example: if we type the command:
# tar cvf /dev/rmt0 *
we're going to have all the files in the tree below to the tape.
How can I pipe the output of the pg_dump to it?
Thank you one more time for your reply, I just feel that it must be a way with
it. I face no problems in my C programs using postgresql, (I like it so much)
so I also feel that this problem sould not be in this mailing list becouse
maybe is a system-side question. If this is the case, sorry everybody.
(one question: where (which mailing list, book or something) is going to help
me installing postgresql to an IBM AiX 4.3 system (RS6000 architecture)?
