[vox-tech] postgres: run function on each row returned from selectstatement

Hi everyone,

this may be a simple question, but I cannot seem to figure it out:

Is there any way to run a function, which expects a single value as an 
argument, for each row returned from a select statement? Note that this is a 
special function, used in the following way:

SELECT sum(length(the_geom )) as dist_meters 
shortest_path_as_geometry('roads', 2192, 154) ;

In the above example the function "shortest_path_as_geometry" expects three 
arguments... Is there any way to feed a function like this its arguments from 
column returned from a previous select statement? Or, would this function 
have to be re-written to allow for this flexibility?

thanks in advance,
