Isql Prompts

The SQL prompt: As shown above, the normal isql prompt for input is the SQL> prompt. This indicates that the previous command has been completed and isql is now waiting for a new command to process.

The CON prompt: The CON> or Continuation prompt is displayed if users press ENTER without ending a SQL statement with a terminator. For example:

SQL> HELP
CON>

Whenever you see the CON> prompt, you may either continue entering the remainder of the command, or, enter a terminator to terminate the command. When you press return, the command will be executed in the latter case.
