Quitting Postgres psql

I've just started using psql and had no idea how to quit - here's how

Today is my first day of playing with the postgres commandline client psql.

My first task was completed (renaming a database) and I wanted to leave the client.

The answer is to type \q, as a Postgres novice this was non-obvious!

Things that did not work;

  • quit
  • exit
  • Ctrl+C
  • sadlfjdsljsdfs
  • die
