    Sounds like you're looking for OIDs (object IDs).

    Everything in PG has them: rows, tables, etc.

    You really should check the docs to learn more about them though.

    OID and ROWID both provide a unique identifier for a row and that is where the similary end between these two. ROWID encode the location of row (file, block , row) where as OID is just 32 bit number.
