I objected to that upthread. I don't think that picking a random one is sane at all. Listing them all might be OK (I notice that that seems to be what both bash and git do). Another issue is whether to print only those having exactly the minimum observed Levenshtein distance, or to print everything less than some cutoff. The former approach seems to me to be placing a great deal of faith in something that's only a heuristic. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
