I would expect the "current query input buffer" to be what is used to enter the next query. When you hit enter that goes into the "current query buffer" (as the entered query is now officially complete and thus becomes the current query) and then "current query input buffer" is cleared for the next action to be dealt with, be it a query or psql command. -- "A search of his car uncovered pornography, a homemade sex aid, women's stockings and a Jack Russell terrier." - http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/wacky/indeed/story-e6frev20-1111118083480 -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
