in today “waiting for 8.4" i will show you 3 new patches. all of them add new functionality to psql – the most common tool to access postrgesql database.
keyboard shortcuts in psql
there is this quite old, but pretty functional concept: keyboard shortcuts.
you know it – you press ctrl-s, and your editor saves currently-edited file.
my problem is that there are some standard cases when i would really love to have this ability in psql. but psql doesn't support it. or does it?
