POSTGRESQL_LIB_PATH

rake-compiler doesn’t use regular “make install”, but uses it’s own install tasks. It therefore doesn’t copy pg/postgresql_lib_path.rb in case of “rake compile”.

Public Class Methods

anchor
connect( *args, &block )

Convenience alias for PG::Connection.new.

# File lib/pg.rb, line 68
def self.connect( *args, &block )
        Connection.new( *args, &block )
end
anchor
init_openssl(do_ssl, do_crypto) → nil

Allows applications to select which security libraries to initialize.

If your application initializes libssl and/or libcrypto libraries and libpq is built with SSL support, you should call PG.init_openssl() to tell libpq that the libssl and/or libcrypto libraries have been initialized by your application, so that libpq will not also initialize those libraries.

When do_ssl is true, libpq will initialize the OpenSSL library before first opening a database connection. When do_crypto is true, the libcrypto library will be initialized. By default (if PG.init_openssl() is not called), both libraries are initialized. When SSL support is not compiled in, this function is present but does nothing.

If your application uses and initializes either OpenSSL or its underlying libcrypto library, you must call this function with false for the appropriate parameter(s) before first opening a database connection. Also be sure that you have done that initialization before opening a database connection.

static VALUE
pg_s_init_openssl(VALUE self, VALUE do_ssl, VALUE do_crypto)
{
        UNUSED( self );
        PQinitOpenSSL(pg_to_bool_int(do_ssl), pg_to_bool_int(do_crypto));
        return Qnil;
}
anchor
init_ssl(do_ssl) → nil

Allows applications to select which security libraries to initialize.

This function is equivalent to PG.init_openssl(do_ssl, do_ssl) . It is sufficient for applications that initialize both or neither of OpenSSL and libcrypto.

static VALUE
pg_s_init_ssl(VALUE self, VALUE do_ssl)
{
        UNUSED( self );
        PQinitSSL(pg_to_bool_int(do_ssl));
        return Qnil;
}
anchor
isthreadsafe → Boolean
is_threadsafe? → Boolean
threadsafe? → Boolean

Returns true if libpq is thread-safe, false otherwise.

static VALUE
pg_s_threadsafe_p(VALUE self)
{
        UNUSED( self );
        return PQisthreadsafe() ? Qtrue : Qfalse;
}
anchor
library_version → Integer

Get the version of the libpq library in use. The number is formed by converting the major, minor, and revision numbers into two-decimal- digit numbers and appending them together. For example, version 7.4.2 will be returned as 70402, and version 8.1 will be returned as 80100 (leading zeroes are not shown). Zero is returned if the connection is bad.

static VALUE
pg_s_library_version(VALUE self)
{
        UNUSED( self );
        return INT2NUM(PQlibVersion());
}
anchor
version_string( include_buildnum=nil )

Get the PG library version.

include_buildnum is no longer used and any value passed will be ignored.

# File lib/pg.rb, line 62
def self.version_string( include_buildnum=nil )
        "%s %s" % [ self.name, VERSION ]
end
