specific mysql newsgroup. Can someone point one out?
It seems to me that mysql doesn't have a couple of functions for
encoding and decoding strings using base64 algorithm. I really
need it *in* mysql, not php or something else.
The reason why it's because I have some strings encoded in a
table which I need to sort so I'd need to decode them first and I
don't want to handle the sorting outside mysql because it will
make the job totally harder.
If there is any chance of finding a solution for that, i'd like
to hear about it if for example, there's a way to implement the
function in mysql somehow. I would even try to change the source
code of mysql, but that wouldn't be too nice because then I'd
have to impose a patch on everyone who would like to run the
Thanks for any information.
