Hi,

Why do we need this parameter? If I use ISQL from a command line in my batch
files and set all options and command line parameters correctly I never see
a GUI. The ISQL starts, does everything what I want using my script and then
exits. Why should I use this additional parameter?

If you specify -nogui and *don't* specify a .SQL file to execute, then
you get a text-only interface to ISQL. Try it and see.

I use -nogui when I'm telnet'ed into a Linux server where the X Window
system is not available. I also use -nogui to show people who are used
to other shell-like tools (e.g. SQL*Plus or ISQL).

-nogui starts up the client application faster than opening a separate
GUI window, but it offers very few of the features that people have come
to expect from our DBISQL tool (e.g. editing result sets).

For some, its just a matter of preference.
