Lars-Erik, while I admit that is it a good job, except for taking slightly
non-MBCS compliant handling of minSortChar.
But, I do believe there are already too many workarounds in MySQLCollation
The original problems are not documented anywhere and comments are missing
, as usual. Thus I think for sake of portability, readability and other
abilities a rewrite of this stuff using Mr. MySQL-Unicode( aka Bar) as
consultant would be good. I bet almost all problems could be fixed using
functions strings library already provides (this stuff might be not well
documented as well, but it works) and there is no reasons to
-First, why do we need computeKeyLength at all? What does it work around?
-Which role does minSortChar play? Why are there attempts to trim it
together with the blanks?
-We don't we use charsetinfo->lengthsp() to trim blanks. Why not?
-We use some ad-hoc technique to trim strings. Why?
-why there are so many if (isBinary) in MySQLCollation?
