The name is PostgreSQL or Postgres, not postgre.

If you have Perl installed then you can do this with dbi-link or
by writing your own PL/PerlU function that uses DBI. You could
create a view to hide the function call, although a limitation of
doing so is that WHERE restrictions would be applied after fetching
the entire result set, which would be inefficient if you want only
a few rows from a large table.
