Usage

You can specify that you want the database server to allow the newline character (\n) in a quoted string either for all sessions or for a specific session. A session is the duration of a client connection to the database server.

To allow or disallow newline characters in quoted strings for the current session when ALLOW_NEWLINE is not set, you can execute the built-in ifx_allow_newline() routine with 't' or 'f' as its only argument.
  • 't' enables support for newline characters within quoted strings.
  • 'f' has the opposite effect.
Calls to ifx_allow_newline() affect only the user session from which that routine is invoked.
