Issue #8 resolved

unknown command 'describe'

created an issue

I'm trying to take HTSQL for a test run, but I'm failing pretty early in the process. I have it installed from the HTSQL PPA

{{{ chris@mu:~$ htsql-ctl version 2.2.1 }}}

But I'm not finding the "describe" command that is referenced in the docs

{{{ chris@mu:~$ htsql-ctl shell -p pgsql://chris@localhost:5432/my_db Password: Interactive HTSQL Shell Type 'help' for more information, 'exit' to quit the shell. certified_mail$ describe ** unknown command 'describe' }}}

(BTW, I tried to post this on Stack Overflow, but there is no htsql tag defined)

    So, the current release is 2.3.0, so this is the issue.

    For this release we changed the APT repository from

      deb http://htsql.org/apt htsql non-free


      deb http://dist.htsql.org/debian stable free

    If you update this line in /etc/apt/sources.list and then do

      # apt-get update
      # apt-get install htsql    
      # apt-get install htsql-pgsql          (for PostgreSQL adapter)
      # apt-get install htsql-mysql          (for MySQL Adapter)

    it should upgrade to 2.3.0.
