Client Tools Reference

This is a reference of the command-line client tools provided with this release. All of these tools can be run from a Windows console session (cmd) or a command-line utility such as Cygwin. They all require certain connection information such as the Greenplum master host name, port, database name, and role name. These can be configured using environment variables. For more information, see Configuring the Client Tools.

The following tools are provided:

  • psql.exe (PostgreSQL interactive terminal)
