STk interface to Postgres95

Just a quick announcement for pgstk - STk interface to Postgres95.

pgstk is a low-level interface for STk to Postgres95. In the same
spirit as the Perl interface to Postgres95, only the low-level
functions in libpq are supported with the following exceptions.

        1. Asynchronous notifies. (Easy to add, but I didn't have any
           need for it.)
        2. Authentication. (Also easy to add.)
        3. BINARY cursors for PQgetvalue. The current routines assume
           that all data are returned as ASCII strings. BINARY output
           is not supported because I haven't really figured out what
           Postgres95 returns in this case and how to get STk to
           understand it.

You can find it at

I've used to as a simple interface between a Web server and a
Postgres95 databases containing a phonebook, reference library, and an
on-line internal document repository (using large objects). It's been
working fine for what I want it to do.

I hope someone will find it useful. Any comments, suggestions,
bug-fixes (gasp!), or new code would be appreciated.

Have fun,
