The new sqsh had a cool command prompt, something like:
<server name> <database name> <command #>>
When I use freetds the database name doesn't show up until I do a
use <database name>. Has anyone got a clue about this? From the
sqsh source file cmd_connect.c I see:
* On some systems, if the charset is mis-configured in the
* SQL Server, it will come back as the string "<NULL>". If
* this is the case, then we want to ignore this value.
which could lead to this behavior, but I could be wrong.
