Postgres Window Functions

From: user 1.

Hello World.

Newer versions of PostgreSQL offer an enhancement to SQL known as
"Window Functions".

http://www.google...­

A typical use case for a window function is to start with a table of
stock prices with these columns:

stock_symbol, price_date, price

Then specify that you want an additional column:

stock_symbol, price_date, price, price20day_moving_av­g

I offer some syntax examples of "Window Functions" in my latest blog entry:

The examples are for Oracle but they should be good enough to get you
started writing Window Functions for Postgres.

A good time for you to wrestle with this syntax is on a Sunday Hackternoon:
