-* OVERVIEW
-
-plv8 is shared library that provides a PostgreSQL procedual language powered by V8 JavaScript Engine. With this program you can write in JavaScript your function that is callable from SQL.
-
-
-* REQUIREMENT
-plv8 requires:
-PG: version 8.4.x (maybe older are allowed)
-V8: version 2.3.8
-g++ and all tools that PG and V8 requires to be built.
-
-
-* INSTALL
-
-** Get PostgreSQL and V8 source
-PG: http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/source/
-v8: http://code.google.com/p/v8/wiki/Source
-
-Build both of them. Note v8 build option requires mode=release and library=shared. Edit Makefile in plv8 directory so that $(PGDIR) and $(V8DIR) point their directories and type "make". If your prompt doesn't say anything and you can find plv8.so, that's all.
-
-
-* TEST
-
-Copy plv8.so into $(PGHOME)/lib and libv8.so from v8 directory into some path that PostgreSQL can read as a library such like /usr/lib/. Then type below SQL in your psql;
-CREATE FUNCTION plv8_call_handler() RETURNS language_handler AS '$libdir/plv8' LANGUAGE C;
-CREATE FUNCTION plv8_call_validator(Oid) RETURNS void AS '$libdir/plv8' LANGUAGE C;
-CREATE LANGUAGE plv8 HANDLER plv8_call_handler VALIDATOR plv8_call_validator;
-
--- create js function
-CREATE FUNCTION plv8_test(keys text[], vals text[]) RETURNS text AS $$
-var o = {};
-for(var i=0; i<keys.length; i++){
- o[keys[i]] = vals[i];
-}
-return JSON.stringify(o);
-$$ LANGUAGE plv8 IMMUTABLE STRICT;
-
--- test
-SELECT plv8_test(ARRAY['name', 'age'], ARRAY['Tom', '29']);
-
-* CAVEATS
-- This is WIP version.
-- Tested on only CentOS 5 (x86), PostgreSQL 8.4 (9.0devel) and v8 2.3.8.
-- There's no interface to call SPI.
-- 1-dim array can be put as arguments. Multi dimension array is not supported.
-- And many, many bugs...
