We could make it "pg_recvwal" now.
Or prw. :-) Personally, I generally push to avoid abbreviations like receive -> recv. Yeah, it's a few extra characters of typing, but you can use tab completion so it's not really a big deal I think. And the problem with abbreviating things is that people then have to remember whether it was abbreviated and in exactly which way. "Wait, was it recv or rcv this time?" Moreover, some of the abbreviations we've used are potentially opaque to non-English-speakers, or in some cases even to English speakers. So I would prefer not to go there. But if the consensus is otherwise, so be it. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
