1. The version of pg_dumpall you have mailed works fine under QNX4.
I see only one minor matter which could be improved:
Since PATHNAME contains already a slash at the end a construct like
but the unnecessary slash doesn't disturb of course.
2. FOO="`echo "$BAR"`"
This construct I have found working on QNX4, Digital Unix, SunOS and Linux.
But the problem seems not to be so simple. After removing the backslashes
from the old pg_dumpall it didn't work any more on Digital Unix! So the
escaped double quotes make sense somewhere in some context.
The new pg_dumpall should be tested on some more platforms. QNX4 is rather
an exotic one. Unfortunately I have an 7.0 installation only on QNX4 here.

I've fixed up the logic and it seems to work but I attach it here so you
can try it because I don't have a reasonably-sized database around right
Regarding the quoting, I'm inclined to say that
style constructs are okay but I'd like to hear from anyone that thinks (or
knows) otherwise. At first I thought
echo "$BAR" | read FOO
might do the trick but for some reason I couldn't get it to work.
I'd be interested in a definite solution to this because it seems some
other shell scripts in the tree suffer from similar problems.
