I'm new working with the mysql code and have couple of questions I hope the members of
this mailing list can help me to answer.
I would like to implement a k-mean clustering function in mysql using the native
functions in mysql. In order to assign an element/tuple to a cluster, I need to do some
pre-computations using all the tuples in a given table. I know that due to the atomicity
property, this is probably very hard to achieve using native functions.
So, my question is, is it possible to access/read all the tuples in a table from a native
function? If the answer is yes, can you point me to a current function that does this (I
haven't found any so far). If the answer is no, could you recommend another right way of
Thanks for your kind reply,
