Not one that is actually reliable. All a script would have to do is include its own begin/commit commands, and it would override what you are talking about. It's okay, in my opinion, if the -1 switch is just a half-baked "best effort" solution. It's not okay to provide a --dry-run switch that is equally full of holes, because if someone were to actually rely on it to not execute the script, the possibility of an override would amount to a security bug. 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
