    The exact reference to what I've read is: in the .pdf file 
"programmer-7.2-A4.pdf" at the very beginning of page 240. It is the 
programmer's reference manual, the section regardings the CREATE TRIGGER 
command in the paragraph explaing the meaning of 'args'.
    It says something about passing the current_user to a trigger but it 
is not clear to me so I'd like to have it explained.
    However I've managed to solve my problem in another way. I simply 
call the trigger with no parameters at all and then I do a query into 
the trigger body (which is written in C) so I get the missing parameters.
