I'm trying to write my own frontend.  I found the info below (thanks 
Tom) about the StartupPacket.

1. For pgsql 7.3.2, what should the protocol version number be?

2. Also, what exactly is a limstring?  (I'm not using C, but a 
language called REALbasic.)  Is this a string of exactly 64 (or 32) 
bits?  Must it be null terminated?  Must empty space be filled with 
zeros?  etc?

3. What could 'Any additional command line arguments' be?  Which 
arguments could be valid at this stage?



>  StartupPacket (F)
>  Int32(296)     - The size of the packet in bytes.

>  LimString64    - Unused.
