psql: A New Edit

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a long statement in psql and wanted to pull up your favorite editor? Now, you can, using the same shortcut of control-x control-e that you would in bash!

Here's how:

$EDITOR ~/.inputrc
Now add the following lines:

$if psql
    "\C-x\C-e": "\C-e\\e\C-m"
$endif
...save the file, and you're good to go.
