We already have some default behaviour defined -- -t timeline --timeline=timeline Timeline from which to read log records. The default is to use the value in startseg, if that is specified; otherwise, the default is 1. -- So, if startseg is not provided, choose the earliest file in the default timeline (given by -t 1 when specified). > It would be quite handy to be able to run > this without arguments (or just with -z) and have it process all the > WAL files that you've got on hand. > +1. -- Best Wishes, Ashutosh Bapat EnterpriseDB Corporation The Postgres Database Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
