NAME

       COMMIT - commit the current transaction

SYNOPSIS

       COMMIT [ WORK | TRANSACTION ]

DESCRIPTION

       COMMIT  commits  the  current  transaction.  All  changes  made  by the
       transaction become visible to others and are guaranteed to  be  durable
       if a crash occurs.

PARAMETERS

       WORK

       TRANSACTION
              Optional key words. They have no effect.

NOTES

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

       Issuing  COMMIT 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:

       COMMIT;

COMPATIBILITY

       The SQL standard only specifies the two forms COMMIT and  COMMIT  WORK.
       Otherwise, this command is fully conforming.

       BEGIN [begin(7)], ROLLBACK [rollback(l)]
