When I try to run the following command:

my_db> \copy \dt *. to /home/john/list.txt

I get an error:

\copy: parse error at "*"

Why? How can I save the output to disk?


Use the \o command as documented in the manual:



> \o <path_to_the_file_where_you_want_the_output>
> [your command]
> \o 

the last statement switches the output of psql back to stdout.
