SPI_connect opens a connection from a
procedure invocation to the SPI manager. You must call this
function if you want to execute commands through SPI. Some utility
SPI functions may be called from unconnected procedures.
If your procedure is already connected,
SPI_connect will return the error code
SPI_ERROR_CONNECT. This could happen if
a procedure that has called
directly calls another procedure that calls
SPI_connect. While recursive calls to the
SPI manager are permitted when an SQL command
called through SPI invokes another function that uses
SPI, directly nested calls to
SPI_finish are forbidden.
