I built 8.0.0rc5 on FreeBSD 4.8. It built with no errors. I then
tried psql using another host running postgresql 7.1.3 and I get the
goofy error message shown below. Other backslash commands seem to work
(ie. \? \e \q).
$ psql -h host-running-7.1.3 test
Welcome to psql 8.0.0rc5, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.
Type: \copyright for distribution terms
\h for help with SQL commands
\? for help with psql commands
\g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
\q to quit
ERROR: parser: parse error at or near "."
Just to see if there might be something funny with the flex generated
parser, I ran flex against psqlscan.l; the output was identical to the
I built postgresql with:
$ pg_config --configure
'--with-template=freebsd' '--with-pam' '--with-openssl' 'CFLAGS= ' 'CPPFLAGS= ' 'LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib'
I have not installed postgresql previously on this system, so it cannot
be picking up anything from a previous install.
A question: where would I go to check if this problem has already
pgsql-bugs by date
