looking for Mac pgEdit beta testers

P: n/a

I'm working on a new product for PostgreSQL (description below) and I'm
looking for a few more Mac users who might be interested in beta
testing. The first release will be for Mac OS X 10.2 or later. A
Windows version will follow, most likely in November. Drop me an email
if you can spare a little time to take a look and provide some


John DeSoi, Ph.D.
Power Tools for PostgreSQL

pgEdit is a high performance SQL editor and development environment
designed specifically for PostgreSQL relational databases. It supports
Emacs style editing with Macintosh and Windows compatibility modes. SQL
scripts can be executed directly from the editor without saving. pgEdit
features include:
* SQL Syntax coloring specifically designed for PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL represents function bodies as single quoted strings which
most editors render with a single color. pgEdit promotes better
usability and correctness by using SQL syntax coloring within the body
of function strings. Keyword coloring is based directly on the source
code of PostgreSQL.
* SQL source code execution without saving the file or switching

pgEdit can execute the SQL source code for (1) the entire buffer, (2)
the highlighted region, (3) the current SQL containing the cursor, or
(4) the current SQL line to the end of the file buffer.
* Direct integration with psql, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal

In addition to SQL, almost all psql commands are supported. This
provides a powerful facility for examining, designing, and managing
* Extensive and customizable editing facilities

pgEdit is based on a Emacs-like text editor with hundreds of commands
available. A friendly interface is included to provide online
documentation and customize the key bindings for any command.
Familiarity with Emacs is not required; pgEdit provides the option
emulate traditional Macintosh and Windows editing styles.
* Integrated documentation

Help in pgEdit is provided with context sensitive links to the online
documentation displayed in your preferred web browser. The PostgreSQL
documentation is also included with direct links to important sections
provided in the pgEditHelp menu. The documentation for the SQL command
nearest to the cursor can be retrieved by pressing a user configurable
key sequence.

* Cross platform and easy to install

pgEdit is a native application for both Macintosh and Windows. It does
not use Java or require installation of external libraries. You have
the option of using the version of psql included with pgEdit or a
different version installed anywhere on your hard drive.
