If I use COPY TO STDOUT in an ECPG program, where does the output go?
If I use COPY TO '/tmp/foo', I get the file created, with the data in
it, but trying COPY TO STDOUT produces no output.
What I'm trying to do is to dump a table's data, and have the resulting
file owned by the application user rather than the dba user.
I would rather to not have to create the file in /tmp, copy contents, rm
/tmp file, if I don't have to.
This is the program I'm using:
EXEC SQL INCLUDE sqlca;
EXEC SQL WHENEVER SQLERROR sqlprint;
EXEC SQL BEGIN DECLARE SECTION;
char *fname = "/tmp/foo";
EXEC SQL END DECLARE SECTION;
EXEC SQL CONNECT TO test;
/* produces expected file "/tmp/foo" */
EXEC SQL COPY foo TO :fname WITH DELIMITER ',';
printf("copy to /tmp/foo : sqlca.sqlcode = %ld", sqlca.sqlcode);
/* goes nowhere (?) */
EXEC SQL COPY foo TO STDOUT WITH DELIMITER ',';
printf("copy to STDOUT : sqlca.sqlcode = %ld\n", sqlca.sqlcode);
EXEC SQL DISCONNECT;
