Postgresql support for awful.
This extension provides the enable-db and switch-to-postgresql-database procedures which add Postgresql support for awful, based on the features provided by the postgresql egg.
Enable Postgresql support for awful. This procedure basically sets up awful to use the connection, disconnection, query and query escaping procedures for Postgresql databases.
Resets all the awful db-related parameters to postgresql values (for when using multiple databases under the same awful server).
This parameter yields a one-argument procedure (the argument is the object representing the results as returned by the postgresql bindings).
The default value is:
(lambda (result) (row-map identity result))
This parameter has been added in version 0.5.

- SSQL support
- The default value for (db-inquirer)'s default keyword parameter is now '(). Warning: this change may break your code!
In case of an empty result set from a query, (db-inquirer) will now return '() instead of #f.
This change can be specially harmful in case you have something like
(or ($db "some query") "something")
In this example, if the query returns an empty result set, that expression would produce:
- in older awful-postgresql versions: "something"
- in awful-postgresql versions with this change: '()
- Fix application of db-result-processor (patch by Hugo Arregui)
- Added db-result-processor parameter (patch by Hugo Arregui)
- Deprecated sql-quoter parameter
- Added switch-to-postgresql-database procedure
- db-inquirer supports the values keyword parameter (patch by Stephen Eilert)
- fix for sql-quoter (reflects on awful's sql-quote)
