I had a look at the script "sql" that comes packaged with SQLcl and came up with some points for potential enhancements:

  • Style:
    • Indentation is not uniform.
    • Brace placement for functions is not uniform.
    • if then placement is not uniform.
    • Code placed in comments can probably be removed.
  • I recommend running "shellcheck" for a list of potential issues.

Points are mainly cosmetic but then again I didn't dig deep, either way I think clean code goes a long way even if it is just a bash script.
