Reference Information

pgtcl is a tcl package for front-end programs to interface with Postgres backends. pgtcl does not use the libpq library but communicates to the backend directly via the frontend-backend protocol. Thus, it is more efficient than previous postgres->tcl bindings which are layered on top of libpq. In addition, pgtcl can handle multiple backend connections from a single frontend application.

This package was originally written by Jolly Chen.
