Useful or not?
I have shared some very simple script I wrote and using for a while. Personally, I think every Ingres user could use it. Especially a new users with some experience with other databases. It is just another Terminal Monitor with few tricks. Once session is started, user can list existing user databases, create or delete database, connect to a database and run SQL statements, disconnect and connect to another database and more. I am sure a few more useful things can be added to make it even better. Some better error handling also comes to mind.
Detailed description and script itself can be copied from here:
Sometimes, little changes can make a difference. Would love to hear your ideas on this one and maybe on some other little tiny things which can be done to improve usability and overall Ingres experience.
