I played a bit with pgScript; I like it. Here are a few observations:
1) It would be nice if pgScript would only execute a select-block, like the
normal pgAdmin querytool does.
2) The example script from the url above says:
IF (SELECT 1 FROM table) -- Then table exists
which is only true if the table has rows, which of course initially it hasn't.
This totally confounds the pgScript newbie ;-) Maybe it can be changed to:
IF (SELECT count(*) FROM table) -- Then table exists
Now it will NOT fail when table exist, but is empty.
This will make the snippet executable with pressing repeated F6.
3) When the BEGIN - END block fails, pgScript executes the ELSE block. This
seems questionable behaviour, no? It can be seen with that same
above-mentioned script. (in the original 'IF (SELECT 1 FROM table)' form )
Great project - keep up the good work!
