For port, an integer, which is the port number of the connection.

For madlib, a string, which is the MADlib version information.

For madlib.version, a string, exactly the same as madlib.

## Not run: 


## set up the database connection
## Assume that .port is port number and .dbname is the database name
cid1 <- db.connect(port = .port, dbname = .dbname, verbose = FALSE)
cid2 <- db.connect(port = .port, dbname = .dbname, verbose = FALSE)

user(cid1)
host(cid2)
dbname(cid1) # use default connection 1
dbms(cid1)
madlib(cid1)
madlib.version(cid1)
schema.madlib(cid1)
conn.pkg(cid1)

## conn is mostly for other packages
con <- conn(cid1) # get the connection object
dbListTables(con) # directly use functions in package RPostgreSQL

## This package provides a better function to list all tables/views
db.objects(cid1) # list all tables/views with their schema in connection 1

db.disconnect(cid1, verbose = FALSE)
db.disconnect(cid2, verbose = FALSE)
