tinman spent a few years mucking around industry before going back to school for a Masters. Currently not enjoying the weather in North England..

He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.

    I usually start out trying a LIKE clause, and usually remove it because it hammers the database and it' *slow*. When it comes to doing *any* kind of regular expressions, more often than not I simply grab the entire string (usually a long data type) and use Perl to do my regular expressions. This simplifies the SQL, is usually faster, and keeps me under the IO limits.

    I don't expect this to be any better with 10g.
