pg_restore ignores environment variable PGDATABASE.
What exactly do you mean by "ignores"? pg_restore prints results to
standard output unless a database name is specified. AFAIK, there's
no syntax to say "I want a direct-to-database restore to whatever you
think the default database is".
That's right, and that seems contradictory with:
"This utility [pg_restore], like most other PostgreSQL utilities, also uses the
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
It is, because we want there to be a way of converting a custom or tar
format archive back to text. I think that probably works out for the
best anyway, since pg_restore is a sufficiently dangerous operation
that you want to be darn sure you're not doing it on the wrong
database. dropdb also requires a database name, while createdb does
not, for similar reasons...
Right, I think we probably need to adjust the docs slightly to match
