Hi List,

i want to execute my sql-files, written with pgadmin 1.10.0 (from
binaries for openSuse 11.2 64bit) directly on the server via nohup. But
since 1.10 (i never had that problem in 1.08) the sql-file saved by
pgadmin begins with 3 control characters. I can only see these
characters, if i open the sql-file with mc and go to edit hexadecimal -
i can replace these three by 20 20 20 (three space) and then i can run
the sql-file, otherwise psql returns: syntax error at or near <feff>.
This occurs on openSuse 11.2 64bit and on openSuse 11.1 64bit. Why puts
pgadmin thiese three characters to my files??

cheers      Andreas
