Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-801) row-wise IN would be useful
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2010 22:40:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-801?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12839052#action_12839052
] 

Adam Kramer commented on HIVE-801:
----------------------------------

Also note that the true utility of this is syntax like
WHERE a.foo IN (b.*)

...for instances where b has many many columns and it is messy to articulate them. I'm thinking
about a current table I have with 800 columns...is there a limit on the character-wise length
of a query?

> ...IN would operate on a given row, and return True when the first argument equaled at
least one of the other arguments. So here IN would return true if 12345=key1 OR 12345=key2
OR 12345=key3 (but wouldn't test the latter two if the first matched).
> This would also help with https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-783, if IN were
implemented in a manner that allows it to be used in an ON clause.
