Subject [jira] Issue Updated: (DERBY-2255) ij should indicate that it is waiting for more input in a multi-line interactive statement.
Date Mon, 28 May 2007 00:49:16 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2255?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Myrna van Lunteren updated DERBY-2255:

    issue.field.attachment: DERBY-2255_4.diff

I refreshed the patch (because various changes have gone in to utilMain since the last posting),
then tried the two versions of StatementFinder.readSingleLineComment (as per attachements
_2 and _3.diff).

But I found strange behavior with the code of _3.diff; a commented line, (i.e. starting with
--) followed by a return, would result in a line without a prompt.
Hitting return again, would give me a prompt again and I could go on...

When I used the code of _2.diff I saw no such problem; no 'getting stuck' in comment mode...

I have no access to a Mac, is there someone who does & can  reconfirm this patch?

> Many users have been confused by the lack of response from ij when they forget to end
a statement with a semicolon, and believe that Derby is taking its sweet time answering their
query, while ij is simply waiting for more input.
> This issue tries to address this by adding a short "> " prompt to the next line after
a newline has been entered by the user without ending the statement with a semicolon.
