DBLINK_GET_PKEY(3)		  PostgreSQL 9.2.7 Documentation	       DBLINK_GET_PKEY(3)

NAME
       dblink_get_pkey - returns the positions and field names of a relation's primary key fields

SYNOPSIS
       dblink_get_pkey(text relname) returns setof dblink_pkey_results

DESCRIPTION
       dblink_get_pkey provides information about the primary key of a relation in the local
       database. This is sometimes useful in generating queries to be sent to remote databases.

ARGUMENTS
       relname
	   Name of a local relation, for example foo or myschema.mytab. Include double quotes if
	   the name is mixed-case or contains special characters, for example "FooBar"; without
	   quotes, the string will be folded to lower case.

RETURN VALUE
       Returns one row for each primary key field, or no rows if the relation has no primary key.
       The result row type is defined as

	   CREATE TYPE dblink_pkey_results AS (position int, colname text);

       The position column simply runs from 1 to N; it is the number of the field within the
       primary key, not the number within the table's columns.

EXAMPLES
	   CREATE TABLE foobar (
	       f1 int,
	       f2 int,
	       f3 int,
	       PRIMARY KEY (f1, f2, f3)
	   );
	   CREATE TABLE

	   SELECT * FROM dblink_get_pkey('foobar');
	    position | colname
	   ----------+---------
		   1 | f1
		   2 | f2
		   3 | f3
	   (3 rows)
