The above expression has nothing to do with Perl unless perhaps you
have like-named PL/Perl functions in your database and you've set
search_path to find them ahead of the ones in pg_catalog, which is
unlikely.  I suspect that the relevant difference between your test
environments is something else.

What exactly do you mean by "not working fine"?  What did you do,
what were you expecting to happen, and what did happen?  Can you
post a standalone test case?

What version of PostgreSQL are you running?  What platform?  What
are the server and client encodings?  What are the server's locale
