>             Fix For: 1.7.0
> The LIKE function is implemented using the java regex. This is different from the STRPOS
function which compares byte by byte.
> When doing to testing I've noticed that for cases where the user wants to do a restriction
like WHERE COL1 LIKE '%xyz%' it would be faster to actually do WHERE STRPOS(COL1, '%xyz%')
> 0
> I propose to change the LIKE operator's algorithm so that it detects if a byte by byte
compare could be applied and if so use the same technique as the STRPOS function. Cases of
the form '%xyz%', 'xyz%' and '%xyz' could be handled this way.
