 Description  « Hide
Either explicit (DECLARE AS CURSOR) or implicit (FOR SELECT) PSQL cursors could make their current record available via the cursor name similar to OLD/NEW trigger contexts, thus making the INTO clause optional. In FOR SELECT loops, it requires AS CURSOR clause to be specified. For example:

  select rdb$relation_id as id, rdb$relation_name as name
  from rdb$relations
  where rdb$view_blr is null
  as cursor tables
do begin
  out_id =;
  out_name =;

To avoid ambiguities, the colon prefix could be used.

It will be useful to implement ability to reference record variable via cursor like this:

execute block as
    select id, x from t1 as cursor c1
  do begin
    for select id, x from t2 where x = :c1.x as cursor c2 do
          /* . . . */

Currently this leads to error: "column unknown C1.X"
