I have noticed when comparing PG to Oracle, which I am doing, that  

  Oracle with SQL*Plus returns the query result set right away and lets
you start paging thru it, while 

  PostgreSQL psql waits until the entire query result set is obtained
before letting you see the first row.

Is there a way to alter that?

Thanks, 
David Link
