The pg_pltemplate system catalog table stores template information for procedural languages. A template for a language allows the language to be created in a particular database by a simple CREATE LANGUAGE command, with no need to specify implementation details. Unlike most system catalogs, pg_pltemplate is shared across all databases of Greenplum system: there is only one copy of pg_pltemplate per system, not one per database. This allows the information to be accessible in each database as it is needed.
There are not currently any commands that manipulate procedural language templates; to change the built-in information, a superuser must modify the table using ordinary INSERT, DELETE, or UPDATE commands.
|tmplname||name||Name of the language this template is for|
|tmpltrusted||boolean||True if language is considered trusted|
|tmplhandler||text||Name of call handler function|
|tmplvalidator||text||Name of validator function, or NULL if none|
|tmpllibrary||text||Path of shared library that implements language|
|tmplacl||aclitem||Access privileges for template (not yet implemented).|
