Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-420) Support regular expressions for column in select clause
Date Fri, 01 May 2009 21:45:31 GMT


Zheng Shao commented on HIVE-420:

@Amr, I think we don't need ^ and $ for regex matching. We only need that for regex searching
in case the searched regex has to start from the beginning of the string or the end of the

For matching, the whole string has to be matched with the regex, so there is no need for ^
and $.

What do you think?
