The library provides FFI bindings to the Pathfinder relational optimiser and code generator. Specifically, the library allows for
optimisation of table algebra (a variant of relational algebra) expressions
and compilation of table algebra expressions into SQL:1999 queries
Note that the C source bundle of Pathfinder is also included in this package. The C sources are automatically built along with the Haskell FFI bindings. There is no need to download and install Pathfinder separately.
