Subject: New sqsh release to fix password reading bug?
Date: Jan 12 2010 9:49AM
I have some cron jobs that invoke sqsh as
sqsh -L footers=0 -L style=vert -U myuser -P mypass -D mydb -S myserver -i foo.sql
to run a series of SQL statements from foo.sql against the database given.
Recently I changed them so that sqsh is invoked from Perl using Perl's IPC::Cmd
library instead of run directly from cron. Somehow, this caused sqsh to report
Can't read password
sqsh: -: No error
instead of connecting using the password given in the -P argument.
I don't know what exactly caused this, but the latest sqsh from Sourceforge CVS
(as of 2010-01-12) works okay. So I assume there was some bug fix between 2.1.6
If this is the case, could a new 2.1.7 release be made with the fix?
