Reference Manual - psql entry:

In app-psql.html is witten:

Note: To simplify typing, commands that consists of
several words do not have to be quoted. Thus it is
fine to type \help alter table

So, I tried:

template1=# \help 'alter table'
No help available for ''alter table''.
Try \h with no arguments to see available help.
template1=# \help "alter table"
No help available for '"alter table"'.
Try \h with no arguments to see available help.

My conclusion is "can not be quoted" and not "do not
have to be quoted". I'm right ?

Halley
