How to know column constraints via system catalog tables

Hi,

I need to query each column's constraint and name of a table in
postgreSQL v7.3.4 with a single SQL query but don't know how. Would
appreciate any pointers!

Thank you.

Regards,
Damon

Ok I realise now to look for it using the pg_constraint and pg_class.
But the conkey in pg_constraint uses int2[] datatype. So if I have a
primary key made up of 2 columns then the conkey can return something
like {1,2}. I wonder how can i store this in my C++ data type? Is
there an equivalent? Thank you.
