finally caught up w/ PostgreSQL 7.3.10! but just when things seem to
be quieting down... looks like 7.4.x has some very interesting bits,
too; the pull is strong.
Guile-PG is a collection of modules for Guile allowing access to
the PostgreSQL RDBMS from Scheme programs.
The low-level module `(database postgres)' provides an almost
one-to-one correspondence with the PostgreSQL "libpq" C library
interface. Other higher-level modules, typically named
`(database postgres-FOO)', provide abstractions and convenience
This is alpha code (pre 1.0 release). It has bugs, and the
interfaces may change from version to version.
To build Guile-PG you need to have installed both the PostgreSQL
frontend library libpq, and a version of Guile that can load
binary module (a b c) from file a/b/c.so or a/b/c/libc.la under
This version of Guile-PG has been tested with PostgreSQL 7.3.10
and Guile 220.127.116.11, but you may find that it works with other
combinations. If so, please let us know the good news.

- Dropped proc: where-clausifier
- Dropped proc: tuples-result->table
These used to be in module (database postgres-table); see NEWS
entry for version 0.26 (2005-02-24). The first proc can be
emulated with `string-append', and the latter with a combination
of #:tuples-result->alists (or #:tuples-result->object-alist)
commands to a `pgtable-manager' closure followed by a mapping
into a two-dimensional array.
As a side effect of dropping `tuples-result->table', the closure
returned by `pgtable-manager' no longer recognizes the commands
#:t-obj-walk, #:table->object-alist and #:table->alists.
- For `gxrepl', results are now printed with " | " field separator
That is, space-pipe-space, instead of simply pipe, as before.
The result is that gxrepl in an Emacs buffer (preferred env :-)
is much more friendly to `dabbrev-expand'.
- All (database postgres) procs now tested
The `XFAIL_TESTS' in tests/Makefile.am has been removed. This
means that we don't expect any tests to fail now; a failing test
indicates a bug. Note that coverage does not imply good coverage!
- Support files guile.m4 and modsup.h synched with Guile 18.104.22.168
tarball, anoncvs instructions, html spewage (NEW!), etc., in dir:
