Tee ALMOST does it. Try doing a \d while tee'ing the output, for example. I don't quite get everything back before it asks for the next input line, sometimes all that is missing is the prompt itself. I haven't set up a 7.4 test system yet, but I've been looking into it in 7.3.3. it gives me something fairly harmless to work on as I learn more C. I think tee may write straight to sysout, so it is probably intermingling with the writes from within psql. I'm not sure why sometimes it is only missing a line or two and other times it is missing several lines. There doesn't appear to be a way to set the popen on the \o command to non-buffer mode or to force a flush on a pipe. (The equivalent of fflush.) I have also noticed that if I have timing on, the timing stats do not get sent to the output file, just to the screen. (That doesn't concern me at this point, it was just a side comment on screen vs file output.) > This is irrelevant to what I'm doing, in any case, and it's not an itch > I feel personally. Work on it yourself if you want it ... I'm trying to, now I really feel like a rookie! :-) -- Mike Nolan ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 6: Have you searched our list archives? http://archives.postgresql.org
