PostGreSQL - pgloader installation?

Granted... this is a dumb question, but it's still worth 500 points to me...  I'm trying to install pgloader, but I can't seem to find any documentation....  I'm running MAMP on MAC OS X.  I've already installed the tcllib, and am about to do:

wget http://pgfoundry.org/frs/download.php/233/pgloader-1.0.tar.gz
tar zxvf pgloader-1.0.tar.gz

I'm wondering what directory I need to actually untar pgloader into?  Is there anything else that I need to do to get it to work?

Hi,

I'm not on my mac right now, but have you tried to search for it with macports?

ports search pgloader

Chances are that it's already in ports...

http://pgloader.projects.postgresql.org/ - docs about pgloader

I don't think it matters where you put it, if it can't find libraries and such it will fail. Try and Terror! ;)

Hmm...  I tried to search, but got this: -bash: ports: command not found

I did look at the documentation, but there's virtually nothing there at all....

OK, you should probably install macports! It's what saves the day if you want to run a lot of 'non-mac' stuff from the open source world.

Just google for it and you'll have no problem finding instructions.

Hi, thanks.   I actually did this after your first response, also, because I apparently need to have Pgtcl installed.... So, I did install macports and then I installed Pgtcl, and I wound up untarring pgloader into /usr/local/src....  But, when I try to run it, I just get this:


Cannot load PostgreSQL DB support: can't find package Pgtcl
Make sure the shared libpgtcl is installed properly

I suppose you really already did answer my question, so I'll just create a new one for this extra stuff....
