That's right, and that seems contradictory with: "This utility [pg_restore], like most other PostgreSQL utilities, also uses the environment variables supported by libpq (see Section 31.13)." as pg_restore does 'ignore' (for want of a better word) PGDATABASE. But I think I can conclude from your reply that that behaviour is indeed intentional. thanks, Erik Rijkers -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
