Overview

The PostgreSQL connection class. The interface for this class is based on libpq, the C application programmer's interface to PostgreSQL. Some familiarity with libpq is recommended, but not necessary.

For example, to send query to the database on the localhost:

require 'pg'
conn = PG::Connection.open(:dbname => 'test')
res = conn.exec_params('SELECT $1 AS a, $2 AS b, $3 AS c', [1, 2, nil])
# Equivalent to:
#  res  = conn.exec('SELECT 1 AS a, 2 AS b, NULL AS c')

See the PG::Result class for information on working with the results of a query.

Constructor Details

#initialize(*args) ⇒ Object

call-seq:

PG::Connection.new -> conn
PG::Connection.new(connection_hash) -> conn
PG::Connection.new(connection_string) -> conn
PG::Connection.new(host, port, options, tty, dbname, user, password) ->  conn

Create a connection to the specified server.

connection_hash must be a ruby Hash with connection parameters. See the list of valid parameters in the PostgreSQL documentation.

There are two accepted formats for connection_string: plain keyword = value strings and URIs. See the documentation of connection strings.

The positional parameter form has the same functionality except that the missing parameters will always take on default values. The parameters are:

host

server hostname

port

server port number

options

backend options

tty

(ignored in newer versions of PostgreSQL)

dbname

connecting database name

user

login user name

password

login password

Examples:

# Connect using all defaults
PG::Connection.new

# As a Hash
PG::Connection.new( :dbname => 'test', :port => 5432 )

# As a String
PG::Connection.new( "dbname=test port=5432" )

# As an Array
PG::Connection.new( nil, 5432, nil, nil, 'test', nil, nil )

If the Ruby default internal encoding is set (i.e., Encoding.default_internal != nil), the connection will have its client_encoding set accordingly.

Raises a PG::Error if the connection fails.

.PG::Connection.connect_start(connection_hash) ⇒ Object .PG::Connection.connect_start(connection_string) ⇒ Object .PG::Connection.connect_start(host, port, options, tty, dbname, login, password) ⇒ Object

This is an asynchronous version of PG::Connection.new.

Use #connect_poll to poll the status of the connection.

NOTE: this does not set the connection's client_encoding for you if Encoding.default_internal is set. To set it after the connection is established, call #internal_encoding=. You can also set it automatically by setting ENV['PGCLIENTENCODING'], or include the 'options' connection parameter.

}

.escape_bytea(string) ⇒ String

Escapes binary data for use within an SQL command with the type bytea.

Certain byte values must be escaped (but all byte values may be escaped) when used as part of a bytea literal in an SQL statement. In general, to escape a byte, it is converted into the three digit octal number equal to the octet value, and preceded by two backslashes. The single quote (') and backslash () characters have special alternative escape sequences. #escape_bytea performs this operation, escaping only the minimally required bytes.

Consider using exec_params, which avoids the need for passing values inside of SQL commands.

NOTE: This class version of this method can only be used safely in client programs that use a single PostgreSQL connection at a time (in this case it can find out what it needs to know “behind the scenes”). It might give the wrong results if used in programs that use multiple database connections; use the same method on the connection object in such cases.

Returns:

  • (String)

	PQfreemem(to);
	return ret;
}

.escape_string(str) ⇒ String

Returns a SQL-safe version of the String str. This is the preferred way to make strings safe for inclusion in SQL queries.

Consider using exec_params, which avoids the need for passing values inside of SQL commands.

Character encoding of escaped string will be equal to client encoding of connection.

NOTE: This class version of this method can only be used safely in client programs that use a single PostgreSQL connection at a time (in this case it can find out what it needs to know “behind the scenes”). It might give the wrong results if used in programs that use multiple database connections; use the same method on the connection object in such cases.

See also convenience functions #escape_literal and #escape_identifier which also add proper quotes around the string.

Returns:

  • (String)

.quote_ident(str) ⇒ String .quote_ident(array) ⇒ String .PG::Connection.quote_ident(str) ⇒ String .PG::Connection.quote_ident(array) ⇒ String

Returns a string that is safe for inclusion in a SQL query as an identifier. Note: this is not a quote function for values, but for identifiers.

For example, in a typical SQL query: SELECT FOO FROM MYTABLE The identifier FOO is folded to lower case, so it actually means foo. If you really want to access the case-sensitive field name FOO, use this function like conn.quote_ident('FOO'), which will return "FOO" (with double-quotes). PostgreSQL will see the double-quotes, and it will not fold to lower case.

Similarly, this function also protects against special characters, and other things that might allow SQL injection if the identifier comes from an untrusted source.

If the parameter is an Array, then all it's values are separately quoted and then joined by a “.” character. This can be used for identifiers in the form “schema”.“table”.“column” .

This method is functional identical to the encoder PG::TextEncoder::Identifier .

If the instance method form is used and the input string character encoding is different to the connection encoding, then the string is converted to this encoding, so that the returned string is always encoded as PG::Connection#internal_encoding .

In the singleton form (PG::Connection.quote_ident) the character encoding of the result string is set to the character encoding of the input string.

Overloads:

  • .quote_ident(str) ⇒ String

    Returns:

    • (String)
  • .quote_ident(array) ⇒ String

.PG::Connection.unescape_bytea(string) ⇒ Object

Converts an escaped string representation of binary data into binary data — the reverse of #escape_bytea. This is needed when retrieving bytea data in text format, but not when retrieving it in binary format.

#copy_data(sql, coder = nil) ⇒ Object

call-seq:

conn.copy_data( sql [, coder] ) {|sql_result| ... } -> PG::Result

Execute a copy process for transfering data to or from the server.

This issues the SQL COPY command via #exec. The response to this (if there is no error in the command) is a PG::Result object that is passed to the block, bearing a status code of PGRES_COPY_OUT or PGRES_COPY_IN (depending on the specified copy direction). The application should then use #put_copy_data or #get_copy_data to receive or transmit data rows and should return from the block when finished.

#copy_data returns another PG::Result object when the data transfer is complete. An exception is raised if some problem was encountered, so it isn't required to make use of any of them. At this point further SQL commands can be issued via #exec. (It is not possible to execute other SQL commands using the same connection while the COPY operation is in progress.)

This method ensures, that the copy process is properly terminated in case of client side or server side failures. Therefore, in case of blocking mode of operation, #copy_data is preferred to raw calls of #put_copy_data, #get_copy_data and #put_copy_end.

coder can be a PG::Coder derivation (typically PG::TextEncoder::CopyRow or PG::TextDecoder::CopyRow). This enables encoding of data fields given to #put_copy_data or decoding of fields received by #get_copy_data.

Example with CSV input format:

conn.exec "create table my_table (a text,b text,c text,d text)"
conn.copy_data "COPY my_table FROM STDIN CSV" do
  conn.put_copy_data "some,data,to,copy\n"
  conn.put_copy_data "more,data,to,copy\n"
end

This creates my_table and inserts two CSV rows.

The same with text format encoder PG::TextEncoder::CopyRow and Array input:

enco = PG::TextEncoder::CopyRow.new
conn.copy_data "COPY my_table FROM STDIN", enco do
  conn.put_copy_data ['some', 'data', 'to', 'copy']
  conn.put_copy_data ['more', 'data', 'to', 'copy']
end

Example with CSV output format:

conn.copy_data "COPY my_table TO STDOUT CSV" do
  while row=conn.get_copy_data
    p row
  end
end

This prints all rows of my_table to stdout:

"some,data,to,copy\n"
"more,data,to,copy\n"

The same with text format decoder PG::TextDecoder::CopyRow and Array output:

deco = PG::TextDecoder::CopyRow.new
conn.copy_data "COPY my_table TO STDOUT", deco do
  while row=conn.get_copy_data
    p row
  end
end

This receives all rows of my_table as ruby array:

["some", "data", "to", "copy"]
["more", "data", "to", "copy"]

#encrypt_password(password, username, algorithm = nil) ⇒ String

This function is intended to be used by client applications that wish to send commands like ALTER USER joe PASSWORD 'pwd'. It is good practice not to send the original cleartext password in such a command, because it might be exposed in command logs, activity displays, and so on. Instead, use this function to convert the password to encrypted form before it is sent.

The password and username arguments are the cleartext password, and the SQL name of the user it is for. algorithm specifies the encryption algorithm to use to encrypt the password. Currently supported algorithms are md5 and scram-sha-256 (on and off are also accepted as aliases for md5, for compatibility with older server versions). Note that support for scram-sha-256 was introduced in PostgreSQL version 10, and will not work correctly with older server versions. If algorithm is omitted or nil, this function will query the server for the current value of the password_encryption setting. That can block, and will fail if the current transaction is aborted, or if the connection is busy executing another query. If you wish to use the default algorithm for the server but want to avoid blocking, query password_encryption yourself before calling #encrypt_password, and pass that value as the algorithm.

Return value is the encrypted password. The caller can assume the string doesn't contain any special characters that would require escaping.

Available since PostgreSQL-10. See also corresponding libpq function.

Returns:

  • (String)

#escape_bytea(string) ⇒ String

Escapes binary data for use within an SQL command with the type bytea.

Certain byte values must be escaped (but all byte values may be escaped) when used as part of a bytea literal in an SQL statement. In general, to escape a byte, it is converted into the three digit octal number equal to the octet value, and preceded by two backslashes. The single quote (') and backslash () characters have special alternative escape sequences. #escape_bytea performs this operation, escaping only the minimally required bytes.

Consider using exec_params, which avoids the need for passing values inside of SQL commands.

NOTE: This class version of this method can only be used safely in client programs that use a single PostgreSQL connection at a time (in this case it can find out what it needs to know “behind the scenes”). It might give the wrong results if used in programs that use multiple database connections; use the same method on the connection object in such cases.

#escape_string(str) ⇒ String Also known as: escape

Returns a SQL-safe version of the String str. This is the preferred way to make strings safe for inclusion in SQL queries.

Consider using exec_params, which avoids the need for passing values inside of SQL commands.

Character encoding of escaped string will be equal to client encoding of connection.

NOTE: This class version of this method can only be used safely in client programs that use a single PostgreSQL connection at a time (in this case it can find out what it needs to know “behind the scenes”). It might give the wrong results if used in programs that use multiple database connections; use the same method on the connection object in such cases.

See also convenience functions #escape_literal and #escape_identifier which also add proper quotes around the string.

Returns:

  • (String)

#exec(sql) ⇒ PG::Result #exec(sql) {|pg_result| ... } ⇒ Object Also known as: async_exec

Sends SQL query request specified by sql to PostgreSQL. On success, it returns a PG::Result instance with all result rows and columns. On failure, it raises a PG::Error.

For backward compatibility, if you pass more than one parameter to this method, it will call #exec_params for you. New code should explicitly use #exec_params if argument placeholders are used.

If the optional code block is given, it will be passed result as an argument, and the PG::Result object will automatically be cleared when the block terminates. In this instance, conn.exec returns the value of the block.

#exec is an alias for #async_exec which is almost identical to #sync_exec . #sync_exec is implemented on the simpler synchronous command processing API of libpq, whereas #async_exec is implemented on the asynchronous API and on ruby's IO mechanisms. Both methods ensure that other threads can process while waiting for the server to complete the request, but #sync_exec blocks all signals to be processed until the query is finished. This is most notably visible by a delayed reaction to Control+C. It's not recommended to use explicit sync or async variants but #exec instead, unless you have a good reason to do so.

See also corresponding libpq function.

Overloads:

  • #exec(sql) ⇒ PG::Result

    Returns:

  • #exec(sql) {|pg_result| ... } ⇒ Object

    Yields:

#exec_params(sql, params[, result_format [, type_map ]]) ⇒ nil #exec_params(sql, params[, result_format [, type_map ]]) {|pg_result| ... } ⇒ Object Also known as: async_exec_params

Sends SQL query request specified by sql to PostgreSQL using placeholders for parameters.

Returns a PG::Result instance on success. On failure, it raises a PG::Error.

params is an array of the bind parameters for the SQL query. Each element of the params array may be either:

a hash of the form:
  {:value  => String (value of bind parameter)
   :type   => Integer (oid of type of bind parameter)
   :format => Integer (0 for text, 1 for binary)
  }
or, it may be a String. If it is a string, that is equivalent to the hash:
  { :value => <string value>, :type => 0, :format => 0 }

PostgreSQL bind parameters are represented as $1, $1, $2, etc., inside the SQL query. The 0th element of the params array is bound to $1, the 1st element is bound to $2, etc. nil is treated as NULL.

If the types are not specified, they will be inferred by PostgreSQL. Instead of specifying type oids, it's recommended to simply add explicit casts in the query to ensure that the right type is used.

For example: “SELECT $1::int”

The optional result_format should be 0 for text results, 1 for binary.

type_map can be a PG::TypeMap derivation (such as PG::BasicTypeMapForQueries). This will type cast the params from various Ruby types before transmission based on the encoders defined by the type map. When a type encoder is used the format and oid of a given bind parameter are retrieved from the encoder instead out of the hash form described above.

If the optional code block is given, it will be passed result as an argument, and the PG::Result object will automatically be cleared when the block terminates. In this instance, conn.exec returns the value of the block.

The primary advantage of #exec_params over #exec is that parameter values can be separated from the command string, thus avoiding the need for tedious and error-prone quoting and escaping. Unlike #exec, #exec_params allows at most one SQL command in the given string. (There can be semicolons in it, but not more than one nonempty command.) This is a limitation of the underlying protocol, but has some usefulness as an extra defense against SQL-injection attacks.

See also corresponding libpq function.

#exec_prepared(statement_name[, params, result_format[, type_map]]) ⇒ PG::Result #exec_prepared(statement_name[, params, result_format[, type_map]]) {|pg_result| ... } ⇒ Object Also known as: async_exec_prepared

Execute prepared named statement specified by statement_name. Returns a PG::Result instance on success. On failure, it raises a PG::Error.

params is an array of the optional bind parameters for the SQL query. Each element of the params array may be either:

a hash of the form:
  {:value  => String (value of bind parameter)
   :format => Integer (0 for text, 1 for binary)
  }

If decoder is set to a PG::Coder derivation, the return type depends on this decoder. PG::TextDecoder::CopyRow decodes the received data fields from one row of PostgreSQL's COPY text format to an Array of Strings. Optionally the decoder can type cast the single fields to various Ruby types in one step, if PG::TextDecoder::CopyRow#type_map is set accordingly.

#prepare(stmt_name, sql[, param_types ]) ⇒ PG::Result Also known as: async_prepare

Prepares statement sql with name name to be executed later. Returns a PG::Result instance on success. On failure, it raises a PG::Error.

param_types is an optional parameter to specify the Oids of the types of the parameters.

If the types are not specified, they will be inferred by PostgreSQL. Instead of specifying type oids, it's recommended to simply add explicit casts in the query to ensure that the right type is used.

For example: “SELECT $1::int”

PostgreSQL bind parameters are represented as $1, $1, $2, etc., inside the SQL query.

#put_copy_data(buffer[, encoder]) ⇒ Boolean

Transmits buffer as copy data to the server. Returns true if the data was sent, false if it was not sent (false is only possible if the connection is in nonblocking mode, and this command would block).

encoder can be a PG::Coder derivation (typically PG::TextEncoder::CopyRow). This encodes the data fields given as buffer from an Array of Strings to PostgreSQL's COPY text format inclusive proper escaping. Optionally the encoder can type cast the fields from various Ruby types in one step, if PG::TextEncoder::CopyRow#type_map is set accordingly.

Raises an exception if an error occurs.

See also #copy_data.

Returns:

#put_copy_end([ error_message ]) ⇒ Boolean

Sends end-of-data indication to the server.

error_message is an optional parameter, and if set, forces the COPY command to fail with the string error_message.

Returns true if the end-of-data was sent, false if it was not sent (false is only possible if the connection is in nonblocking mode, and this command would block).

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

#quote_ident(str) ⇒ String #quote_ident(array) ⇒ String #PG::Connection.quote_ident(str) ⇒ String #PG::Connection.quote_ident(array) ⇒ String

Returns a string that is safe for inclusion in a SQL query as an identifier. Note: this is not a quote function for values, but for identifiers.

For example, in a typical SQL query: SELECT FOO FROM MYTABLE The identifier FOO is folded to lower case, so it actually means foo. If you really want to access the case-sensitive field name FOO, use this function like conn.quote_ident('FOO'), which will return "FOO" (with double-quotes). PostgreSQL will see the double-quotes, and it will not fold to lower case.

Similarly, this function also protects against special characters, and other things that might allow SQL injection if the identifier comes from an untrusted source.

If the parameter is an Array, then all it's values are separately quoted and then joined by a “.” character. This can be used for identifiers in the form “schema”.“table”.“column” .

This method is functional identical to the encoder PG::TextEncoder::Identifier .

If the instance method form is used and the input string character encoding is different to the connection encoding, then the string is converted to this encoding, so that the returned string is always encoded as PG::Connection#internal_encoding .

In the singleton form (PG::Connection.quote_ident) the character encoding of the result string is set to the character encoding of the input string.

Overloads:

  • #quote_ident(str) ⇒ String

    Returns:

    • (String)
  • #quote_ident(array) ⇒ String

    Returns:

    • (String)
  • #PG::Connection.quote_ident(str) ⇒ String

    Returns:

    • (String)
  • #PG::Connection.quote_ident(array) ⇒ String

#send_prepare(stmt_name, sql[, param_types ]) ⇒ nil

Prepares statement sql with name name to be executed later. Sends prepare command asynchronously, and returns immediately. On failure, it raises a PG::Error.

param_types is an optional parameter to specify the Oids of the types of the parameters.

If the types are not specified, they will be inferred by PostgreSQL. Instead of specifying type oids, it's recommended to simply add explicit casts in the query to ensure that the right type is used.

For example: “SELECT $1::int”

PostgreSQL bind parameters are represented as $1, $1, $2, etc., inside the SQL query.

Returns:

#send_query_params(sql, params[, result_format [, type_map ]]) ⇒ nil

Sends SQL query request specified by sql to PostgreSQL for asynchronous processing, and immediately returns. On failure, it raises a PG::Error.

params is an array of the bind parameters for the SQL query. Each element of the params array may be either:

a hash of the form:
  {:value  => String (value of bind parameter)
   :type   => Integer (oid of type of bind parameter)
   :format => Integer (0 for text, 1 for binary)
  }
or, it may be a String. If it is a string, that is equivalent to the hash:
  { :value => <string value>, :type => 0, :format => 0 }

PostgreSQL bind parameters are represented as $1, $1, $2, etc., inside the SQL query. The 0th element of the params array is bound to $1, the 1st element is bound to $2, etc. nil is treated as NULL.

If the types are not specified, they will be inferred by PostgreSQL. Instead of specifying type oids, it's recommended to simply add explicit casts in the query to ensure that the right type is used.

For example: “SELECT $1::int”

The optional result_format should be 0 for text results, 1 for binary.

type_map can be a PG::TypeMap derivation (such as PG::BasicTypeMapForQueries). This will type cast the params from various Ruby types before transmission based on the encoders defined by the type map. When a type encoder is used the format and oid of a given bind parameter are retrieved from the encoder instead out of the hash form described above.

Returns:

  • (nil)

#set_error_context_visibility(context_visibility) ⇒ Integer

Sets connection's context display mode to context_visibility and returns the previous setting. Available settings are:

  • PQSHOW_CONTEXT_NEVER

  • PQSHOW_CONTEXT_ERRORS

  • PQSHOW_CONTEXT_ALWAYS

This mode controls whether the CONTEXT field is included in messages (unless the verbosity setting is TERSE, in which case CONTEXT is never shown). The NEVER mode never includes CONTEXT, while ALWAYS always includes it if available. In ERRORS mode (the default), CONTEXT fields are included only for error messages, not for notices and warnings.

Changing this mode does not affect the messages available from already-existing PG::Result objects, only subsequently-created ones. (But see PG::Result#verbose_error_message if you want to print a previous error with a different display mode.)

See also corresponding libpq function.

Available since PostgreSQL-9.6

#set_notice_processor {|message| ... } ⇒ Proc

See #set_notice_receiver for the desription of what this and the notice_processor methods do.

This function takes a new block to act as the notice processor and returns the Proc object previously set, or nil if it was previously the default. The block should accept a single String object.

If you pass no arguments, it will reset the handler to the default.

Yields:

#set_notice_receiver {|result| ... } ⇒ Proc

Notice and warning messages generated by the server are not returned by the query execution functions, since they do not imply failure of the query. Instead they are passed to a notice handling function, and execution continues normally after the handler returns. The default notice handling function prints the message on stderr, but the application can override this behavior by supplying its own handling function.

For historical reasons, there are two levels of notice handling, called the notice receiver and notice processor. The default behavior is for the notice receiver to format the notice and pass a string to the notice processor for printing. However, an application that chooses to provide its own notice receiver will typically ignore the notice processor layer and just do all the work in the notice receiver.

This function takes a new block to act as the handler, which should accept a single parameter that will be a PG::Result object, and returns the Proc object previously set, or nil if it was previously the default.

If you pass no arguments, it will reset the handler to the default.

Note: The result passed to the block should not be used outside of the block, since the corresponding C object could be freed after the block finishes.

Yields:

  • (result)

Returns:

  • (Proc)

#set_single_row_modeself

To enter single-row mode, call this method immediately after a successful call of send_query (or a sibling function). This mode selection is effective only for the currently executing query. Then call Connection#get_result repeatedly, until it returns nil.

Each (but the last) received Result has exactly one row and a Result#result_status of PGRES_SINGLE_TUPLE. The last Result has zero rows and is used to indicate a successful execution of the query. All of these Result objects will contain the same row description data (column names, types, etc) that an ordinary Result object for the query would have.

Caution: While processing a query, the server may return some rows and then encounter an error, causing the query to be aborted. Ordinarily, pg discards any such rows and reports only the error. But in single-row mode, those rows will have already been returned to the application. Hence, the application will see some Result objects followed by an Error raised in get_result. For proper transactional behavior, the application must be designed to discard or undo whatever has been done with the previously-processed rows, if the query ultimately fails.

Example:

conn.send_query( "your SQL command" )
conn.set_single_row_mode
loop do
  res = conn.get_result or break
  res.check
  res.each do |row|
    # do something with the received row
  end
end

Returns:

  • (self)

#setnonblocking(Boolean) ⇒ nil

Sets the nonblocking status of the connection. In the blocking state, calls to #send_query will block until the message is sent to the server, but will not wait for the query results. In the nonblocking state, calls to #send_query will return an error if the socket is not ready for writing. Note: This function does not affect #exec, because that function doesn't return until the server has processed the query and returned the results. Returns nil.

Returns:

#socketInteger

This method is deprecated. Please use the more portable method #socket_io .

Returns the socket's file descriptor for this connection. IO.for_fd() can be used to build a proper IO object to the socket. If you do so, you will likely also want to set autoclose=false on it to prevent Ruby from closing the socket to PostgreSQL if it goes out of scope. Alternatively, you can use #socket_io, which creates an IO that's associated with the connection object itself, and so won't go out of scope until the connection does.

Note: On Windows the file descriptor is not usable, since it can not be used to build a Ruby IO object.

Returns:

  • (Integer)

#socket_ioObject

Fetch a memorized IO object created from the Connection's underlying socket. This object can be used for IO.select to wait for events while running asynchronous API calls.

Using this instead of #socket avoids the problem of the underlying connection being closed by Ruby when an IO created using IO.for_fd(conn.socket) goes out of scope. In contrast to #socket, it also works on Windows.

#ssl_attribute(attribute_name) ⇒ String

Returns SSL-related information about the connection.

The list of available attributes varies depending on the SSL library being used, and the type of connection. If an attribute is not available, returns nil.

The following attributes are commonly available:

library

Name of the SSL implementation in use. (Currently, only “OpenSSL” is implemented)

protocol

SSL/TLS version in use. Common values are “SSLv2”, “SSLv3”, “TLSv1”, “TLSv1.1” and “TLSv1.2”, but an implementation may return other strings if some other protocol is used.

key_bits

Number of key bits used by the encryption algorithm.

cipher

A short name of the ciphersuite used, e.g. “DHE-RSA-DES-CBC3-SHA”. The names are specific to each SSL implementation.

compression

If SSL compression is in use, returns the name of the compression algorithm, or “on” if compression is used but the algorithm is not known. If compression is not in use, returns “off”.

See also #ssl_attribute_names and the corresponding libpq function.

Available since PostgreSQL-9.5

Returns:

This function has the same behavior as #async_exec, but is implemented using the synchronous command processing API of libpq. It's not recommended to use explicit sync or async variants but #exec instead, unless you have a good reason to do so.

Both #sync_exec and #async_exec release the GVL while waiting for server response, so that concurrent threads will get executed. However #async_exec has two advantages:

  1. #async_exec can be aborted by signals (like Ctrl-C), while #exec blocks signal processing until the query is answered.

  2. Ruby VM gets notified about IO blocked operations. It can therefore schedule things like garbage collection, while queries are running like in this proposal: bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14723

Overloads:

  • #sync_exec(sql) ⇒ PG::Result

    Returns:

  • #sync_exec(sql) {|pg_result| ... } ⇒ Object

    Yields:
