Finding Triggers or Functions


I am working on a database that is developed on by many people and mostly matained by some people that it takes me a while to get in touch with.  The thing is, I come across triggers that are firing or functions that are used in the code (perl) and I dont' know where to find the sql code for them? Or how I can modify them?  I was thinking along the lines of the \d table_name command, which gives me a description of the table (I use the psql client application to interact with postgresql).  Any suggestions?


RE: Finding Triggers or Functions

i would recommend you to use pgAdmin II as client, if possible and it will solve you a lot of problems

the other way (not that i'm sure, that it's the only one) is dealing with pg_proc, pg_trigger system tables, but it's not that easy here is the docs about them http://www.postgresql.org/docs/view.php?version=7.3&idoc=1&file=catalogs.html
