Another alternative to the suggestion in the link Andreas provided
might be to use the COPY FROM STDIN method;
If you have your query-results in an array of strings, separator a
pipe-symbol, for example, something like the following snippet might
work for you:

PQexec(conn, "CREATE TABLE foo (a int4, b char(16), d double precision)");
PQexec(conn, "COPY foo FROM STDIN DELIMITER AS  '|'");
foreach ($my_results as &$value) {
PQputline(conn, $value);


Please don't top post, and don't use HTML e-Mail :}  Make your quotes concise.
