Section 8 — Files
General Information
OVERVIEW
       This section describes some of the important files used by Postgres.

NOTATION
       “.../” at the front of file names represents the path to the postgres
       user's home directory.  Anything in square brackets (“[” and “]”) is
       optional.  Anything in braces (“{” and “}”) can be repeated 0 or more
       times.  Parentheses (“(and )”) are used to group boolean
       expressions.  | is the boolean operator OR.

BUGS
       The descriptions of
        .../data/PG_VERSION,
        .../data/base/*/PG_VERSION,
       the temporary sort files, and the database debugging trace files are
       absent.
