Function parameter

Hi there,

I need to do something like this:

-- Function: public."ModifyO rder"(int4, text, int4)
CREATE FUNCTION public."ModifyO rder"(int4, text, int4) RETURNS void AS
'UPDATE orders SET $2 = $3 WHERE "OrderId" = $1;' LANGUAGE 'sql'
COMMENT ON FUNCTION public."ModifyO rder"(int4, text, int4) IS
'ModifyOrder(Or derId, FieldToUpdate, NewValue)';

where parameter $2 will be a text value that represent a column name.
Is there any way to do something like that?

I just want to be able to change values of several columns using this
function, writting something like this:

ModifyOrder(192 83, "DestinationId" , 5);

so that it will update the record with OrderId = 19283, and change
DestinationId to value 5.

I wish to execute code from a string. The string will have a function name, which will return a string: Dim a as string a = "MyFunctionName(param1, param2)" I have seen a ton of people discuss how reflection does this, but I cannot find the syntax to do this. I have tried several code example off of gotdotnet and other articles. Can somebody please show me the code to do this?

Correct me if I am wrong, declaring formal parameters of functions as const, if they should not be/is not changed, has 2 benefits; 1. It tells the program that calls this function that the parameter will not be changed - so don't worry. 2. It tells the implementor and the maintainer of this function that the parameter should not be changed inside the function. And it is for this reason that some people advocate that it is a good idea to...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
