( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm not much of a DBA. I use MySQL and PG every now and again. Reading the above posts, I had a thought, and I assume I'm wrong, and if you can, I'd love it if someone would explain what's wrong with my thought.

Achem...

My Thought...

What about creating yet another index with the timestamp in the format you need? It seems to me that you'd be trading a bunch of space for exactly the performance you're looking for. It also seems to me that the DBs that allow you to index on a function might just be doing exactly this under the covers.

Thanks!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
