Firebird Foreign Data Wrapper (FDW)
A PostgreSQL foreign data wrapper (FDW) for the Firebird database.
Let's assume you have a CSV file which looks like this:
$ head -5 /tmp/prod.csv 1,14,ACADEMY ACADEMY,PENELOPE GUINESS,25.99,0,1976 2,6,ACADEMY ACE,EWAN RICKMAN,20.99,0,6289 3,6,ACADEMY ADAPTATION,VIVIEN KAHN,28.99,0,7173 4,3,ACADEMY AFFAIR,ALAN MARX,14.99,0,8042 5,3,ACADEMY AFRICAN,CARRIE HANNAH,11.99,1,2183
Well I've finally fulfilled one of my 2013 New Year's resolutions, which was to write some kind of foreign data wrapper, so with no further ado here is the initial implementation. It is basically working but is still very much in the proof-of-concept/unstable/may-eat-your-data stage. Having said that, if anyone has a practical use for this I'd be very interested to hear about it - my main motivation for creating this FDW is to learn more about PostgreSQL internals.
