Ingres 10.0 – Escaping from the Ingres terminal monitor

For new users to Ingres quitting from the Ingres terminal monitor, tm or sql, just got easier. With change 2901 the terminal monitor has gone from this:

$ sql iidbdb
INGRES TERMINAL MONITOR Copyright 2010 Ingres Corporation
Ingres Linux Version II 10.0.0 (int.lnx/2863)NPTL login
Thu Apr 29 08:46:38 2010
continue
*

to:

$ sql iidbdb
INGRES TERMINAL MONITOR Copyright 2010 Ingres Corporation
Ingres Linux Version II 10.0.0 (int.lnx/2903)NPTL login
Thu Apr 29 09:16:40 2010
Enter \g to execute commands, "help help\g" for help, \q to quit
continue
*

No more ninja skills needed for executing a query or to escape from the terminal monitor.

    Of course, if you are trying to kick the tm habit then take a look at the Eclipse DTP project. Based on DTP, the Ingres Database Workbench dispenses with much of the Eclipse functionality and after its diet is well worth a test drive.
