Module for using Python to write SQL functions Maintained by:pgsql@FreeBSD.org Port Added: 20 Jan 2013 10:07:11 Also Listed In:python License: not specified in port
PostgreSQL is a sophisticated Object-Relational DBMS, supporting
almost all SQL constructs, including subselects, transactions, and
user-defined types and functions. It is the most advanced open-source
database available anywhere. Commercial Support is also available.
The original Postgres code was the effort of many graduate students,
undergraduate students, and staff programmers working under the direction of
Professor Michael Stonebraker at the University of California, Berkeley. In
1995, Andrew Yu and Jolly Chen took on the task of converting the DBMS query
language to SQL and created a new database system which came to known as
Postgres95. Many others contributed to the porting, testing, debugging and
enhancement of the Postgres95 code. As the code improved, and 1995 faded into
memory, PostgreSQL was born.
PostgreSQL development is presently being performed by a team of Internet
developers who are now responsible for all current and future development. The
development team coordinator is Marc G. Fournier (scrappy@PostgreSQL.ORG).
Support is available from the PostgreSQL developer/user community through the
support mailing list (questions@PostgreSQL.ORG).
PostgreSQL is free and the complete source is available.
Split out postgresql-python port on to bunch of PostgreSQL version-dependent
so the packages can be built with different versions of PostgreSQL. The patch is
from crees@ with couple additions from me. It has some problems that prevents
build with python3, but it was decided that it's better to add this as starting
point. Maintainership of this port also was passed to pgsql@ team.
