Netezza Stored Procedure and Function Parser

We learn to recognize the routine-like code as a single statement. Starting from Coginiti v22.03, running a script with multiple procedures or triggers (or any entity with a semicolon inside) is possible in all supported modes: at cursor, in a sequence, and as batch. Even if ‘$’ or ‘$$’ is present as part of the entity text, you don’t need to switch parameter parsing off. Moreover, you can specify parameters or session variables inside the statement.
