I agree that there's no functional benefit; it's a matter of consistency. In particular, psql has always allowed you to write multiple SQL commands per line: SELECT 2+2; SELECT x FROM tab; SELECT y FROM othertab; and as of yesterday pgbench supports that as well. So allowing multiple backslash commands on a line improves consistency both with psql and with pgbench's own behavior, IMV. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
