I'm writing to this address because the links for mail lists fail and 
said to write here if looking for docs and such...

I have some problem that is keeping me from being able to use
pg_dump or pg_dumpall on a 6.4 version.  What I have found mentioned 
about the error indicates either that my pg_xxxx applications are 
the wrong versions for the database (very possible) or that there 
is a problem with one or more table values (possibly but all databases 
and tables on the machine fail to dump).

Trying to move to a 7.0 version
 and simply moving the data dir from the old machine also will not seem
to work on the new...

SOOoooo - I guess I have to write my own pg_dump in order to get the 
old data out --- but I don't know exactly what the format of pg_dump 
and pg_dumpall might be --- nor which tables will actually be dumped 
(for example, I can the the various pg_whatever tables in a base, but 
I also see a bunch of tables named "regf12" and I have no idea what 
those are or whether I should dump them in my pg_dump program)

Thanks for any pointers and/or docs to help me get this right -- there's
a BUNCH of data that can be lost if I cannot get it out of the old database.

Wishing you an "OOBA OOBA" 21st Century!!
