Arrays of INET type not properly parsed into a list

Reported by Dave Rawks | September 26th, 2013 @ 10:06 PM

An array of INET is returned as an unparsed string while and array of TEXT is parsed correctly and returned as a list of strings.
I tested on 2.5.1 and 2.4.6 and got the same result.

import psycopg2 conn = psycopg2.connect(host='test', database='schema_test_3') cur = conn.cursor() cur.execute("SELECT ips from hardware LIMIT 20;")


cur.execute("SELECT roles from hardware LIMIT 20;")

    Please follow the new_array_type example to see how to create a generic array type caster.

    >>> cur.execute("select '{,}'::inet[]")
    >>> print cur.fetchone()
    >>> cur.execute("select typarray from pg_type where typname = 'inet'")
    >>> print cur.fetchone()
    >>> psycopg2.extensions.register_type(
    ...     psycopg2.extensions.new_array_type(
    ...         (1041,), 'INET[]', psycopg2.STRING))
    >>> cur.execute("select '{,}'::inet[]")
    >>> print cur.fetchone()
    (['', ''],)
