pg_convert() checks and converts the values in
assoc_array into suitable values for use in a SQL
statement. Precondition for pg_convert() is the
existence of a table table_name which has at least
as many columns as assoc_array has elements. The
fieldnames in table_name must match the indices in
assoc_array and the corresponding datatypes must be
compatible. Returns an array with the converted values on success,
If there are boolean fields in table_name don't
use the constant
TRUE in assoc_array. It will be
converted to the string 'TRUE' which is no valid entry for boolean fields
in PostgreSQL. Use one of t, true, 1, y, yes instead.
