to use PG_ASYNC from libpq-int.h.
Hmm, yes. Maybe we need to export that. I also see:
+ #if 0
+ #include "libpq-int.h" /* For PG_ASYNC */
which needs to disappear.
If we're going to include libpq-int.h maybe we need to put it in
common.h. Is there a reason that our own client programs shouldn't use
our own library internals?
Perhaps what I should do it split it into two patches, one which just adds
\connect& and \S (switch connection) which will be the larger patch because it
has to break out the connection structure like you mention. And a second which
does the asynchronous response handling which is where there may be some
questions about how to handle things.
I don't think that's necessary.
There are some places that it doesn't use PG style (e.g. no newline before
brace after if) and some comments that need to be fixed (e.g. /* XXX get result
Ah, but it's not just the comment, if I put an XXX in it's definitely because
there's something I'm not certain about. In this case now that I look at it
again I think it's usually ok to ignore the result but in a session with
ON_ERROR_STOP set (such as one running a script) we would want to exit I
Another XXX is next to the include of libpq-int.h and a third one is where I
have the pg_sleep loop instead of a select/poll loop. It occurs to me now that
that loop should check cancel_pressed too.
Are you talking about polling the connection? Using select/poll except
on a socket is forbidden, because it breaks on Windows.
