I've been using postgres for a little while, but don't have a formal background in database theory (I'm trying to remedy that by reading up starting off with CJ Date's Introduction to Database Systems -it's is in the mail ) so I was wondering when R-tree indexes were useful as opposed to the default B-tree indexes. Also, when would hash indexes be useful?
Any help would be appreciated.
PostgreSQL, it's what's for dinner...
