I have a little trouble using large objects with libpq an postgresql 8.2 in windows xp professional SP2.

I want to save and load large objects from/to database, but its fails.

If i try to use the lo_import() function

#define FILE_IN "d:/question-icon.png"
Oid file_oid = lo_import (conn, FILE_IN);

file_oid always have 0 value, nevertheless the large object has been created in table
pg_largeobject, but has no data.

If i try to create the large object by hand, read the file from disk, and then write the binary data
to the large object, the call to lo_write() always fail (always returns -1):

    ifstream is; (FILE_IN, ios::binary );

    // get length of file:
    is.seekg (0, ios::end);
    length = is.tellg();    
    is.seekg (0, ios::beg);

    // allocate memory:
    buffer = new char [length];

    // read data as a block: (buffer,length);
    * create the large object
    lobjId = lo_creat(conn, INV_WRITE);
    if (lobjId == 0) {
        fprintf(stderr, "no se pudo crear el objeto grande\n");
        exit_nicely (conn);
    lobj_fd = lo_open(conn, lobjId, INV_WRITE);

    * Write the content of the file to the large object
    tmp = lo_write(conn, lobj_fd, buffer, length);
    if (tmp < length) {
        fprintf(stderr, "error al escribir el objeto grande: %d bytes escritos\n", tmp);
        exit_nicely (conn);

In this case, the call to lo_write() does not work, but i can see the large object created in table

Any Idea?
