NAME
       createlang  - Add a new programming language to a Postgres
       database

SYNOPSIS
       createlang [ langname ]
       createlang [ -h host ] [ -p port ]
               [ langname ]

   INPUTS
       createlang accepts the following command line arguments:

       langname
              Specifies the name of the backend programming  lan-
              guage  to  be  defined.  createlang will prompt for
              langname if it is  not  specified  on  the  command
              line.

       createlang  also  accepts the following command line argu-
       ments for connection parameters:

       -h host
              Specifies the hostname of the machine on which  the
              postmaster  is  running.  Defaults to using a local
              Unix domain socket rather than an IP connection.

       -p port
              Specifies the Internet TCP/IP port  or  local  Unix
              domain  socket file extension on which the postmas-
              ter is listening for connections. The  port  number
              defaults  to 5432, or the value of the PGPORT envi-
              ronment variable (if set).

   OUTPUTS
       createlang installs a  new  programming  language  into  a
       Postgres server, so has not explicit external output.

DESCRIPTION

       guage  to  a  Postgres  database.   createlang   currently
