I've noticed two issues with the query buffer post-commit e984ef5
(Support \if ... \elif ... \else ... \endif in psql scripting):
I thought that Tom's changes were somehow intentional, in order to
simplify the code.
1. \p ignores the "previous buffer". Example:
postgres=# select 1;
Query buffer is empty.
Yep. Note that it still works with:
SELECT 1 \g
That doesn't match the pre-commit behavior, and is not
consistent with \e or \w
Indeed, there is definitely an issue because \g executes something where
\p prints nothing...
10devel> SELECT 1; -- 1
10devel> \p -- <empty>
10devel> \g -- 1!
2. \r keeps the "previous buffer". I think it should clear it. Example:
I'm not that sure, \r clears the current buffer and restores the previous
one, so that two \r are needed to fully clear:
9.6> SELECT 1; -- 1
9.6> SELECT 2 \r -- first clear
9.6> \g -- 1 (redo SELECT 1)
9.6> \r -- second clear
9.6> \g -- <nothing>
Patch applies, make check ok. However:
I tend to agree that 1 above is a regression, but ISTM that 2 is somehow
the expected behavior, i.e. \r should not clear the previous buffer, just
the current one, so that two \r are needed for a "full" clear. \r should
clear the current buffer and restores the previous one.
