Method Postgres.postgres()->select_db()

Method select_db

void select_db(string dbname)


This function allows you to connect to a database. Due to restrictions of the Postgres frontend-backend protocol, you always have to be connected to a database, so in fact this function just allows you to connect to a different database on the same server.


This function can raise exceptions if something goes wrong (backend process not running, not enough permissions..)
