Hello all,

I'm writing some extension and I have a hot code path that has a lot of double (C type) data and needs to output NUMERIC tuple data.  The current methods I can find in the code to convert sprintf the double to a buffer and then invoke the numeric_in function on them.  I've profile my stuff and I'm spending (wasting) all my time in that conversion.  Is there a more efficient method of converting a double into a postgres numeric value?

Best regards,


Theo Schlossnagle
