Suppress output from function?

Whenever I run certain functions, such as the example below, the output
is either displayed in the terminal or emailed to be by cron, depending
on how I run it. Is there any way I can re-write the function, set some
psql parameters, etc, to ensure that the results aren't displayed? I've
checked some of the postgresql.conf logging properties and running psql
with quiet = true, but all to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions,
hints, ?

CREATE TYPE employeeType AS (empID INTEGER, updateDate DATE, bDate
INTEGER, val1 NUMERIC, val2 NUMERIC, val3 NUMERIC, val4 NUMERIC, favNum
NUMERIC);

CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION updateEmployeeD ata() RETURNS SETOF
employeeType AS '
DECLARE
rec RECORD;
BEGIN
FOR rec IN SELECT empID, updateDate, bDate, val1, val2 ,
val3, val4, favNum FROM newData LOOP
RETURN NEXT rec;
UPDATE currentData SET val1=rec.val1, val2=rec.val2,
val3=rec.val2, val4=rec.val4, favNum=rec.favN um, updateDate=rec. updateDate
WHERE empID=rec.empID ;
END LOOP;
RETURN;
END;
' LANGUAGE 'plpgsql';

SELECT * FROM updateEmployeeD ata();
Thanks
Ron

Add "> /dev/null" to the psql invocation in the cron script. You might
also want to add "-q" to suppress uninteresting comments on stderr,
while still hearing about any actual errors (in other words, I wouldn't
also route stderr to /dev/null...)

Is there a way 'within' psql to suppress output? One of our cron scripts calls a sql file which contains various database commands (ALTER TABLEs, UPDATEs, etc) and various user-defined functions. So within this sql file there are various SELECT * FROM myFunction(); which sends output to the user from cron. I can't see anyway to suppress this from the psql docs and I don't believe that I can suppress it from cron either (I'll do some...

Is it possible to disable/suppress alert popups in javascript? I need to write a function that will loop through a form's inputs and "manually" fire their onchange events (if found). Some of those functions could popup alert boxes which I'd like to be able to temporarily suppress. Thanks for any help.

Hi, I'm writing a program which imports an external module writing in C and calls a function provided by the module to do my job. But the method produces a lot of output to the stdout, and this consumes most of the running time. My question is, is there a way to depress the output produced by the function and hence make my program run faster? It's too complicated for me to modify the source code and recompile the external module.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
