This should save a lot of support requests, hopefully.


I kinda doubt it will save any :-(. In what situation would this not merely be echoing back what the guy had just specifically typed on the command line?

When no -E argument is supplied at all, or when they type ISO-8859-1 instead of LATIN1.


The reason it will help with support is because newbies will go "SQL_ASCII! I don't want ascii!". Then they will kill initdb, check the man page and then re-run it with a real encoding.

Seriously NO new postgres user checks the initdb man page before running is the first time. I know this from the irc channel...

Either way, I see no reason _not_ to just do it...
