Subject: [PG95]: new postgres functions


-

-----
BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE

Some time ago I read in the mailing list requests of people looking

for more time and da
te functions. I have now written some of them:



time_difference(time1, time2) ,also defined as operator '
-
'


hour(time)


minutes(time)


seconds(time)


asMinutes(time)


asSeconds(time)


currentTime()


currentDate()


The file can be compiled as sha
red library and loaded as dynamic module

without need to recompile the backend. This can also be taken as an
example

of the extensibility of postgres (user
-
defined functions, operators,
etc).

I would be nice to see more of these user contributed modules p
osted to
this

list and hopefully accessible from the Postgres home page.
