Subject:RIGHT JOIN better than INNER JOIN?
View as plain text  
I apologize if this is a naive question but it appears through my
testing that a RIGHT JOIN may out perform an INNER JOIN in those cases
where they would produce identical result sets. i.e. there are no keys
in the left table that do not exist in the right table. 

Is this true? If so, it this peculiar to MySQL or would this be true
with almost all database servers? i.e. Oracle, DB2, MSSQL, etc.

TIA,

R.
