Andrew: your workaround was to create a domain which would use
0/1 ... this idea will not behave like a boolean, because it does not
My replacement boolean type does accept all this input values and does
emit 0/1 instead of 'f'/'t'. But since i have to create all the casts,
operators and classes (like for boolean) again for my data type, i asked
if someone know a more elegant way ... if not, i will use my data type.
You can see the code here:
This are some hundred lines of SQL which are almost doubled from the
boolean type. So maybe there's a way to avoid all this, but i haven't
