Please Help with libpq and unicode

P: n/a
Hey all,

First off I am new to postgres and multi-lingual development so pardon me if
the answer is overly obvious.

We our database is setup for UNICODE. We have a mixture of clients
accessing the database through JDBC and C (libpq). My question involves the
C interface to Postgres libpq.

Once a query has been made (with client_connection set to unicode) I need to
get the data from result object using PQgetvalue(). PQgetvalue returns a
char*. There is some documentation about testing to see if the data is
binary and then casting it to the appropriate type. No where did it mention
the handling of unicode data.

So if I am executing PQgetvalue and I am expecting a unicode string what do
I have to do to get to the unicode data? cast it? convert it with a

An example would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
