IO::PgLoFile is an IO::File (and IO::Handle) compatible class that reads or writes data to Postgresql's large objects (aka BLOBs). I built this on top of Gisle Aas' IO::String, so he did most of the work here. I just tweaked it to do the Blobs. This module requires perl5.005_03 or better because it works best with Chip's no-memory-leak-on-self-tie-patch. Installation as usual: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install Documentation is embedded in the module. Copyright 2000 Mark A.
