General Information about the QPSQL driver

QPSQL Unicode Support

The QPSQL driver automatically detects whether the PostgreSQL database you are connecting to supports Unicode or not. Unicode is automatically used if the server supports it. Note that the driver only supports the UTF-8 encoding. If your database uses any other encoding, the server must be compiled with Unicode conversion support.

Unicode support was introduced in PostgreSQL version 7.1 and it will only work if both the PostgreSQL server and the CopperSpice client library have been compiled with multibyte support.


Binary Large Objects are supported through the BYTEA field type in PostgreSQL server.
