pg_convert — Convert associative array values into suitable for SQL statement
pg_convert() checks and converts the values in assoc_array into suitable values for use in an SQL statement. Precondition for pg_convert() is the existence of a table table_name which has at least as many columns as assoc_array has elements. The fieldnames in table_name must match the indices in assoc_array and the corresponding datatypes must be compatible. Returns an array with the converted values on success, FALSE otherwise.
If there are boolean fields in table_name don't use the constant TRUE in assoc_array. It will be converted to the string 'TRUE' which is no valid entry for boolean fields in PostgreSQL. Use one of t, true, 1, y, yes instead.
This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, its name, and surrounding documentation may change without notice in a future release of PHP. This function should be used at your own risk.

$vals = pg_convert($dbconn, 'authors', $tmp);
