It also flushes the input buffer. I think it is probably reasonable to let it cancel interactive \if state as well. A useful thought-experiment is to ask what behavior you'd want if we had metacommand loops ... and I think the answer there is pretty obvious: you'd want control-C to kill a loop. I'm less sure about what it ought to do when control is somewhere in a script file. I *think* we have things set up to kill execution of script files altogether, in which case we have the answer a fortiori. If not, there's room for discussion. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
