I have written a little routine that returns somebody's age from a
date-of-birth input, and it has always worked perfectly as part of a
client-side front end.
However, the best place for it is as a server-side function, which MySQL
v.5 now allows. So I have re-written it as a server-side function and
tried to run it, but it only works so long as I log in as root. Any
other user throws up an error, regardless of permissions granted. And
even logged in as root, I cannot GRANT permission to EXECUTE for any
What's happening here???
