BUG #16096: psql (non-interactive mode) SQL multi-request commands don't report all feedback ?!

apt.postgresql.org Repository Update
The following bug has been logged on the website:

Bug reference:      16096
Logged by:          Alain DE WIT
Email address:      [hidden email]
PostgreSQL version: 12.0
Operating system:   Centos 7.7.1908
Description:        

When performing one INSERT SQL command in non-interactive mode I get a
feedback about the number of line inserted. OK
When performing the INSERT command SQL request following by for example a
select ; I don't get any feedback of the insert command !!??

NOT A BIG ISSUE !!

Example (screen-shot):
[adw@postgresql12 ~]$ psql -h 127.0.0.1 -U portefeuille -d portefeuille -c
"INSERT INTO ma_table ( SELECT 1, SUM(valeur) FROM ma_table WHERE classe =
2);"
INSERT 0 1
[adw@postgresql12 ~]$
[adw@postgresql12 ~]$
[adw@postgresql12 ~]$ psql -h 127.0.0.1 -U portefeuille -d portefeuille -c
"INSERT INTO ma_table ( SELECT 1, SUM(valeur) FROM ma_table WHERE classe =
2); SELECT * FROM ma_table WHERE classe = 1;"
 classe | valeur
--------+--------
      1 |     10
      1 |     20
      1 |    300
      1 |    990
      1 |    990
      1 |    990
      1 |    990
(7 rows)



Test enviroment (I'm new at Postgres but have more than 10 years
porfessional exeprience in Oracle):
-°) Centos 7.7.1908 runnig under VirtualBox version 6.0.10
-°) Postgres 12.0 installed from the yum Repository
-°) Putty
-°) postgresql.conf not modified

Bonjour Alain,

This is because -c passes the string as ONE sql command, and for
multi-statement commands psql only reports about the last one.

The equivalent in interactive mode is to use \; between SQL commands.

ISTM that this is the documented behavior, so it is not a bug.

There is a submitted patch to change it to show all results:
