Well, I think we have several simple options (apart from implementing a
real parser in the driver ;-)...
1) In parseDollarQuotes(), we look at the character directly before the
$-char and compare it against all valid identifier characters. If it is,
we don't have a possible dollar-quote start:
2) Same concept as 1), but instead create a new method parseIdentifier()
in the Parser class that would be used to detect and "skip" all regular
keywords and identifiers in the query string, and therefore avoid the
current problem. Seems like a performance loss though, because we would
do more checks on each character.
3) Again in parseDollarQuotes(), we look at the character directly
before the $-char and see if it is an *allowed* character before a
dollar-quote. But what is allowed? Operators, a comma, parenthesis, etc.
... this is much harder to get right.
Looking at gram.y and scan.l (...but I'm no expert) I can't see another
case of a dollar-character that I missed, except the one allowed in
ident_cont... so option 1) seems like the easiest solution. I will send
a patch implementing option 1 shortly.
Regarding your patch: I'm not sure if we should apply it, too. You will
probably get a different error messages in case of an unterminated
dollar quote. I haven't looked at the possible results.
My original reasoning was that if there is an unterminated quote, this
should not cause us parsing what is inside the quotes. So I would leave
it as-is. Another option would be to throw an "unterminated
dollar-quote" exception directly in the driver, which would be more
helpful in some cases.
