How convert array elements to rows?

How convert array elements to rows?

How convert array elements to rows?

(OP)
I need to convert array elements to rows. Suppose that I have the array {5,77,39,19}. I need it as a table with the index in one column and the element in the other column:

CODE

index | element
------+--------
    1 |       5
    2 |      77
    3 |      39
    4 |      19
Which command does this?

RE: How convert array elements to rows?

Do you need a data structure, a collection type or do you need a GUI-component to display your array?

The index is already part of your array: array[2]=39 if you don't insist in indexing your rows from 1...len, but can use 0...(len-1).

Else you add 1 to the index and get the row.

Or explain your problem in more detail.

Like that

rski=> select i, (ARRAY[11,22,33])[i] from
          generate_series(1,array_upper(ARRAY[11,22,33],1)) i;
 i | array
---+-------
 1 |    11
 2 |    22
 3 |    33
(3 rows)

If you know the dimension of a table you can replace array_upper with it.  

RE: How convert array elements to rows?

Sorry I forget the CODE tags. It looks better


CODE

rski=> select i, (ARRAY[11,22,33])[i] from
          generate_series(1,array_upper(ARRAY[11,22,33],1)) i;
 i | array
---+-------
 1 |    11
 2 |    22
 3 |    33
(3 rows)
