ecpg -e

P: n/a

I am running 7.1.3... The docs for ecpg in 7.1.3 don't have the -e
option in them!

YET, ecpg -e WORKS!!! for solving the vacuum problem.

Just WHAT does the -e option in ecpg do????

Thanks for the info...

Are you sure you mean '-e'?

ecpg.c in 7.1.3 says:
....
while ((c = getopt(argc, argv, "vo:I:tD:d")) != EOF)
....

I do not see a -e here.

Here is the version output from ecpg...
Let me know if this version of ecpg matches the 7.1.3 docs...

[postgres@polaris bin]$ ecpg -V
ecpg: invalid option -- V
ecpg - the postgresql preprocessor, version: 2.8.0


Yes, this is the version that came with 7.1.3 AFAIRC. And yes, it
already had the option '-t' in the same function as today, but I cannot
find anything about an option '-e'.
