Attached patch does what is described in the title, hopefully. Continuations
in other pgbench backslash-commands should be dealt with elsewhere...
Would (a similar version of) that patch also apply to .psqlrc?
Pgbench has its own lexer & parser for \set expressions, so the
continuation is handled there.
I "\set" a bunch of lengthy SQL commands in there, e.g.
I agree that this looks like a desirable feature, however I would tend to
see that as material for another independent patch.
I think that .pgsqrc is really just a "psql" script so the handling would
be somewhere there... I'll have a look.
\set config 'SELECT name, current_setting(name), CASE source WHEN
$$configuration file$$ THEN sourcefile||$$:$$||sourceline ELSE source
END FROM pg_settings WHERE source <> $$default$$;'
Hmmm. I'm not sure how this is parsed. If this is considered a string
'...', then maybe \set should wait for the end of the string instead of
the end of the line, i.e. no continuation would be needed...
\set config '
SELECT name, ...
CASE ... END
Being able to split that over several lines would greatly improve
maintainability. (Though I do realize this would also require a notion
for splitting/continuing strings.)
Yep. I'm not sure of the actual feature which is needed.
