i am using mysql 3.23 on a machine with 150MB HDD and
96 MB ram. i've already mailed you about some problems
regarding mysqld functioning.
now i am getting a serious problem.
1. the max () keyword reports 'different' resultsets
when following queries are sent to it,
a. select max(id) from table1;
b. select max(id) from table1 where id2=100;
in any condition (like the low resources etc.) i
should not get different results from seemingly
2. i will also point one observation when i was
hacking the max () function. when there is an empty
set max() reports Null. this makes max() limited to
arithmatic ops only. i am using max() to find the next
incremental primary key index for some other table.
i am now seriously considering NOT using max() for
that reason after 1,. and 2. above.
