Updated versions of these two implementations of the Tcl interface to
PostgreSQL were released recently:

  pgin.tcl, the "pure-TCL" implementation, at:
     Currently available for download:
     + pgintcl-2.1.0.tgz

  pgtcl-ng, the libpq-based "next generation" implementation, at:
     Currently available for download:
     + pgtcl1.5.1.tar.gz            (Source distribution)
     +         (Binary distribution for Windows)
     +       (A Pgtcl Reference Manual)
       You can look at the manual online, until it finds a better home, at:

Pgtclng is the "next generation" libpq-based Tcl interface to PostgreSQL.
It adds many new commands and features which take advantage of new
capabilities in the PostgreSQL-7.4 protocol and libpq client library.
Pgin.tcl is a Tcl interface to PostgreSQL which is written entirely in Tcl.
It is mostly but not entirely command-compatible with pgtclng.  Both of
these implementations are only for use with PostgreSQL 7.4 and up.

New features in these releases include:
  * Get command status tag with: pg_result -cmdStatus (suggested by levanj)
  * Parse, bind, and execute SQL statement with: pg_exec_params,
    complements pg_exec_prepared; both are binary safe.
  * Extended pg_exec to support optional parameters (idea from karl's
    implementation in Gborg pgtcl CVS); this is a text-format-only version
    of pg_exec_params.
  * Bug fix (pgin.tcl) and improvement (pgtclng) to pg_execute error handling.
