PQinitTypes(3) Initializes libpqtypes with the libpq event system.

SYNOPSIS

#include <libpqtypes.h>

int PQinitTypes(PGconn *conn);
int PQclearTypes(PGconn *conn);

DESCRIPTION

libpqtypes makes use of the libpq Event System. Before using libpqtypes, you must initialize libpqtypes as a libpq EventProc. The PQinitTypes function takes a PGconn that libpqtypes will be initialized with; each PGconn requires its own initialization.

PQclearTypes removes all registered types from the given PGconn. A good use for this is after a PQresetXXX call when it might be desired to re-register all types that may have gone stale.

RETURN VALUE

PQinitTypes and PQclearTypes return zero if it fails and non-zero if it succeeds.

EXAMPLES

/* call prior to any other libpqtypes functions that operate on conn. */
