As you'll realise I'm new to all things Postgresql (& Gambas).

I'm following Dr Bain's article in LXF71.

Everything has gone ok (now) up until the introduction of "< data.sql"
as per below.

Can someone explain what we're trying to do here, and more importantly
why it's not working and what I've done wrong, please?



postgres(at)zaphod2:~$ /usr/lib/postgresql/bin/initdb
-D /usr/local/pgsql/data/
The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.

initdb: directory "/usr/local/pgsql/data/" exists but is not empty
If you want to create a new database system, either remove or empty
the directory "/usr/local/pgsql/data/" or run initdb with an argument
other than
postgres(at)zaphod2:~$ /usr/lib/postgresql/bin/postmaster
-D /usr/local/pgsql/data/ >~/logfile 2>&1 &
[1] 14081
postgres(at)zaphod2:~$ /usr/lib/postgresql/bin/createdb customers CREATE
[1]+  Exit 1                  /usr/lib/postgresql/bin/postmaster
-D /usr/local/pgsql/data/ >~/logfile 2>&1
postgres(at)zaphod2:~$ /usr/lib/postgresql/bin/psql customers < data.sql
bash: data.sql: No such file or directory
