I thought we rejected that idea once already, on the grounds that it
would make it too hard to tell the difference between intended code
In any case, I had some questions:
. is it compatible with PLSQL?
what I know no, but PLSQL has different mechanism for calling procedures.
And first of all it knows references to variables.
. can the effect be achieved by assigning to a composite?
yes. I can use record type. But here is problem with less readability
The best of is implementation of CALL statement, where I can transmit values
"by" references. But it's not possible in Postgres :-(. I can't to select
unambiguously called procedure. "I can, if I accept SQL Server syntax, where
caller specify OUT, INOUT, IN flags too". I am unhappy with current
situation, and I search good solution. Simultaneous assignment is simplest.
