BTW, the main argument for considering it a new feature is that we don't suggest anywhere in our code or docs that this will work. If we're going to go out of our way to make it work, should we mention it in psql-ref? And what about changing the interactive prompt, along the lines of End with a backslash and a period on a line by itself, or an EOF signal. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
