Export CSV from psql

P: n/a
Hi,
is there a way to display the table in CSV format or write a query in
csv to a file ?

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

I use the standard pipe signs as delimiters, comma's are a pretty silly
delimiter if you ask me. Try putting this at the top of your psql query

-- \a toggle between unaligned and aligned output mode
-- \t show only rows (currently off)
-- \o [FILE] send all query results to file or |pipe
\a
\t
\o /tmp/outputfile.txt
select ......
\o

Don't know if this helps you, or if you really need CSV. Someone probably
has written a CSV export I 'spose.

Best of luck.
