Runpg

(since EVL 2.0)

Run SQL or psql commands from stdin or <f_in> and write result into stdout or <f_out>. It returns output from ‘psql’ as is, so for quering the table to get formatted EVL output use ‘Readpg’ or ‘evl readpg’.

Password is taken:

  1. from file ‘$EVL_PASSFILE’, which is by default ‘$HOME/.evlpass’,
  2. from file ‘$PGPASSFILE’, which is by default ‘$HOME/.pgpass’.

When such file has not permissions 600, it is ignored! For details see ‘evl-password’.

Runpg

is to be used in EVS job structure definition file. <f_out> is either output file or flow name.

evl runpg

is intended for standalone usage, i.e. to be invoked from command line and writing records to standard output.

EVD and EVS are EVL definition files, for details see evl-evd(5) and evl-evs(5).
