Databases - Practical PostgreSQL

Chapter 6. PostgreSQL Clients

This chapter elaborates on the available clients for PostgreSQL. Clients exist in order to provide a user interface to the PostgreSQL server (also called the backend).

The two most accessible clients for PostgreSQL are the command-line driven psql and a graphical alternative, PgAccess . The psql client is installed by default, while PgAccess requires specification of the --with-tcl option during compilation of the PostgreSQL source code (as mentioned in Chapter 2).

The psql Client: Advanced Topics

Basic information about the psql client is included in Chapter 4; this section documents more advanced information about the psql client. The topics covered include a complete list of command line options, and an explanation of each psql slash command. This section also contains information on how to load SQL input from external files, use the psql history, and substitute variables dynamically into SQL statements within psql .
