I'm trying to add large text items to a table (field declared as type
text). PQSendQuery can't take more than 8192 bytes.That's OK. But COPY
also complains that tuples of 29896 bytes are too big (trying to copy
from a file). So how do I get big text fields into a table? Do I have to
make them large objects? (And, if so, in what sense is the text field of
"unlimited size"?) Or am I just missing something simple?

Many thanks in advance for any advice...
