"PostgreSQL is a database system derived from Postgres4.2. It conforms to (most of) ANSI SQL and offers many interesting capabilities (C dynamic linking for functions or type definition, etc.). This package is copyright by the Regents of the University of California, and is freely distributable.

"Python is an interpreted programming language. It is object oriented, simple to use (light syntax, simple and straightforward statements), and has many extensions for building GUIs, interfacing with WWW, etc. An intelligent web browser (HotJava like) is currently under development (November 1995), and this should open programmers many doors. Python is copyrighted by Stichting S Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and is freely distributable.

"PyGreSQL is a python module that interfaces to a PostgreSQL database. It embeds the PostgreSQL query library to allow easy use of the powerful PostgreSQL features from a Python script."
