Loading Binary Data into Bytea Fields?

I am getting ready to try to add image viewing into my postgresql browser...

I am probably going to start with storing a thumbnail and a URL for the
actual
image in the table.

Is there any demo code for loading binary (actually images...) data into
a bytea field.

The data is going to come from a file....

Jerry

PS: Searching the archives has become painfully slow for me...are there
any mirror
sites that have reasonable response times?

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

Hello,

I suggest using large objects over bytea fields.
What language are you using?

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
