    perl -wle "print '111|1' == 111"

    javascript:alert(parseInt("111|1"))

    Granted, the perl example throws a warning, but it does evaluate that statement as true.

    You may consider it a bug; others might consider it a feature. And if you were to change how "111|1" gets cast to a number, or return an error for comparing a varchar to a number, who knows what that would break/fix.

    Incidentally, SQLite and PostgreSQL don't have this problem/feature.
