CMC> We want to do string comparison using SQL. For instance:
CMC> A user asks to return all the strings that have 'asmmsg' at the beginning.
[ ... ]
CMC> Is it possible to do this with SQL?
Yes; Check out a good book on SQL from your nearby library and look
up the "LIKE" operator for the "WHERE" clause.
CMC> I have a routine to do this type of comparison in C; would it be possible
CMC> to embed it in MYSQL?
