 I have some CSV files which I need to link to from within PG
 Say, you have the following data feed in /tmp/codigos_postales.csv
"01000","San Angel","Colonia","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
"01010","Los Alpes","Colonia","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
"01020","Guadalupe Inn","Colonia","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
"01028","Secretaria de Contraloria y Desarrollo Administrativo","Gran
usuario","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
"01029","Infonavit","Gran usuario","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
"01030","Axotla","Pueblo","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
"01030","Florida","Colonia","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
"01040","Campestre","Colonia","Alvaro Obregon","Distrito Federal"
 then you can defined the DB data model as:
 CREATE TABLE codigos_postales(
  cp char(5),
  asentamiento varchar(120),
  tipo_asentamiento varchar(120),
  municipio varchar(120),
  estado varchar(120)
 and copy all values into the DB like this:
 COPY codigos_postales FROM '/tmp/codigos_postales.csv' DELIMITERS ',' CSV;
 But how do you just link to the data feed effectively keeping it in a
CSV file format not internal to PG?
 Also I need for all changes to the data to (of course!) be propagated
to the data back end
 Then you can link to the same data feed from some other engine that
reads in CSV (I think all do or should)
 How do you link  to a CSV using PG?
 Thank you
