I certainly agree that \sf already does what it does just fine. The
question is more about whether anyone is likely to think that removing
source code from \df+ output constitutes an important loss of
I had some vague ideas about inventing a new \df behavior modeled on
the way that \d+ shows view definitions, that is, put the function body
in a footer rather than in the tabular output proper. So you could
imagine something like
# \df++ foo*
Schema | Name | ...
public | fooa | ...
public | foob | ...
Source code for fooa(int, text):
... body of fooa ...
Source code for foob(text, text, numeric):
... body of foob ...
But I'm not sure it's worth the trouble. And anyway we could add this
