sorry, i badly explain my second problem (and it make me think about an other question :) )
what i really want to say is :
i would like to declare a global variable :
	DEFINE pool = 10
and use it into a function
	@createMDNS.sql &pool
and my file createMDNS.sql is
	create or replace package body MDXML_EXPORT
	   pool varchar2(150) := '&1';
		procedure toto(.......
that what i wanted to explain

and my new question is :) :
i wrote a first file :
	\set databaseName 'base1'
	\set createMDXML '/home/toto/MDXML/execCreateMDXML.sql'
	\i :createMDXML
and in my second file, i need the name af the database but if i wrote this :
	SET search_path TO :databaseName;
it doesn't work....

Yes. You can use commands and variables psql.

\set TempDirectory /home/... -- in file global.sql
\i global.sql

SELECT somefce(:TempDirectory)

I don't know. I don't use pgadmin
