Here is a v13. No code changes, but TAP tests added to maintain pgbench
coverage to green.
Summary of patch contents:
This patch extends pgbench expressions syntax while keeping
compatibility with SQL expressions.
It adds support for NULL and BOOLEAN, as well as assorted logical,
comparison and test operators (AND, <>, <=, IS NULL...).
A CASE construct is provided which takes advantage of the added BOOLEAN.
Integer and double functions and operators are also extended: bitwise
operators (<< & ...), exp/ln, mod() as synonymous to % (matching pg).
Added TAP tests maintain pgbench source coverage to green (if you ignore
lexer & parser generated files...).
Future plans include extending and synchronizing psql & pgbench variable
and expression syntaxes:
- move expression parsing and evaluation in fe_utils,
which would allow to
- extend psql with some \let i <expression> cliend-side syntax
(ISTM that extending the \set syntax cannot be upward compatible)
and probably handle \let as a synonymous to \set in pgbench.
- allow \if <expression> in psql instead of just \if <boolean>
- add \if ... support to pgbench
- maybe add TEXT type support to the expression engine, if useful
- maybe add :'var" and :"var" support to pgbench, if useful
There are already patches in the queue for:
- testing whether a variable is defined in psql
feature could eventually be added to pgbench as well
- adding \gset (& \cset) to pgbench to get output of possibly
combined queries into variables, which can be used for making
decisions later in the script.
