PostgreSQL Slammed by PHP Creator
For the 37000th time. I never said a word about emulating any PostgreSQL features in PHP. The emulation comment was completely MySQL-related to get around a limitation that when you use prepared statements MySQL doesn't use the query cache. If you application can benefit from the query cache, then PHP has an option to emulate prepare/execute in PDO. You are reading a half-baked second-hand account of a talk I gave.
