Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1498) range_prefix view parameter to ease working with ranges
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2012 16:07:42 GMT


Ronny Pfannschmidt commented on COUCHDB-1498:

the main issue is - that from what i gathered - all wrong key prefixes are used out there,
to supposedly mean what i want to archieve
i suppose its reasonable to assume to do this only for one level of nesting (only work for
string key and array key, don’t consider partial of the last item(

i still would like to propose both variants, 

keyprefix would be strict, and consider only items in the toplevel sequence (so it would work
for strings and arrays and solve most simple cases)
rangeprefix would recurse on the last item of the sequence if it is a array or string

but im under the impression that the rangeprefix idea is a bit too complicated and may cause
grief in the long run
