Re: binary cursor returning truncated data

Is this issue still open?

Some guys say me that they experience similar troubles and this may
prevent them from migrating from OneBigWellKnownDBMS to Postgres.

Hello Christopher,

i simply want to retrieve the content of a binary field in a Postgresql
table, and use that information in a PHP script.
That binary field contains binary information that must be read with PHP
binary functions (unpack).

The current way : POSTGRES cursor -> text version of the binary field in
PHP -> conversion back to a binary string with pg_unescape_bytea
is tedious and brings performance issues.
