Python PostgreSQL API for BYTEA

2 New Member
I have to migrate a current PostgreSQL database to MSSQL. For doing this task I uses Python to create script for doing this task.

Now, I want to extract the data from the current PostgreSQL database, but I need a API. I decided to go with PSYCOPG2, but it seem to have a problem with the BYTEA datatype. I use these lines of code :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. self.cursor.execute('SELECT * FROM electronicassembly WHERE id_pk = 2')        
  2. list = self.cursor.fetchall()
  3. print psycopg2.Binary(str(list[0][19]))
But it print me value like \\000\\0JEBF. I know that is suppose to be octal format, but character like JEBF is not "octal" and sometime (for other binary data) it is punctuaction character, like ';@ that are showed. So, do I miss something.... ??

Or, do you know another Python API that can handle BYTEA correctly ? Because, for MSSQL the binary for a BULK INSERT as to be in hexadecimal format.


P-S : Sorry for my english, it is not my first language

Its been almost 4 weeks since PostgreSQL 7.4 was released, and, as with all new releases, several bugs have been identified as administrators migrate their production databases up from older releases. As the list of Changes since 7.4 is fairly small, they are included in this email: * Fixed bug in "CREATE SCHEMA" parsing in ECPG (Michael) * Fix compile error when "--enable-thread-safety" and "--with-perl" are used together (Peter)
