Last night, I attempted to access the data of several TEXT parameters into a
'language 'C'' function I've created and got an interesting result...  on of
the strings gets a little garbled on the end...  I haven't attempted to
debug it yet (isoloate the behaviour; gave up; went home) but I"m wondering
if it can be assumed that the (char *) part of the TEXT struct (VARDATA) has
been terminated at the length specified by the (VARLEN())?? part. What I'm
passing is a TEXT field containing a unix filesystem path, and there seems
to be either a couple chars added on the end, or the last couple char of the
path are unprintable type things... (possibly a backspace character at the

question #2... W.R.T. creating the function stub in a database,

CREATE FUNCTION test_func (text) returns int4 as
'/usr/local/pgsql/', 'cfunc' LANGUAGE 'C';

pg_dump doesn't seem to include the extra 'cfunc' in the output of this
line... this is an annoyance as everytime i use pgdump to move the database
over to another machine, i have to edit this back in before sucking it in
through psql.
so the question is, "what's up with this?" 8)
