NAME
       END - commit the current transaction


SYNOPSIS
       END [ WORK | TRANSACTION ]


DESCRIPTION
       END  commits  the current transaction. All changes made by the transac-
       tion become visible to others and are guaranteed to  be  durable  if(3,n)  a
       crash occurs. This command is a PostgreSQL extension that is equivalent
       to COMMIT [commit(7)].

PARAMETERS
       WORK

       TRANSACTION
              Optional key words. They have no effect.

NOTES
       Use ROLLBACK [rollback(7)] to abort(3,7) a transaction.

       Issuing END when not inside a transaction does no  harm,  but  it  will
       provoke a warning message.

EXAMPLES
       To commit the current transaction and make all changes permanent:

       END;


COMPATIBILITY
       END is a PostgreSQL extension that provides functionality equivalent to
       COMMIT [commit(7)], which is specified in(1,8) the SQL standard.

SEE ALSO
       BEGIN [begin(7)], COMMIT [commit(l)], ROLLBACK [rollback(l)]
