Casual pgadmin Mystery

Hey guys!

Here is a mystery for you. Try solving it. It took about an hour from me to find what was the problem. 🙂

Try executing this statement (copy & paste it):

СREATE TABLE testTable(testField VARCHAR(32));

My pgadmin was swearing like a trooper because of this. Do you know why? Here is the answer:

The 'C' character in "CREATE" was actually the Cyrillic (Russian) 'c' letter.
It is pronounced like English 's', but it looks just like English 'c'.
Here is more about it:С
Accidentally I only switched to English language after typing the
first letter of the statement.
Mystery solved. Hope you’ve enjoyed it. 🙂
