Thanks.

Since I don't have any C knowledge... do you have any code snippets or places I could look for examples on how to do this? I'm really only comfortable with pl/sql - or in this case pl/pgsql. Not sure if there is a way to call it that way or not. Either way... looking forward to some examples or links.

Thanks.
