I am reading the following in the documentation: "Tip: A common mistake is to write a semicolon immediately after BEGIN. This is incorrect and will result in a syntax error."
So, "common mistake" means semicolons after BEGIN seem consistent to many people - it seems consistent to me as well. If PostgreSql allowed them, we would have one less rule to memorize, shorter documentation, less mistakes and so on. In other words, without this limitation PostgreSql would be slightly more useful, right? What am I missing? Why do we need this rule? How is it making PostgreSql better? -- View this message in context: http://postgresql.1045698.n5.nabble.com/why-semicolon-after-begin-is-not-allowed-in-postgresql-tp5779905.html Sent from the PostgreSQL - hackers mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
