Subject Terrible CQL idea: > and < aliases of >= and <=
Date Mon, 02 May 2011 10:22:12 GMT
Is this still true?

*Note: The greater-than and less-than operators (> and <) result in key
ranges that are inclusive of the terms. There is no supported notion of
“strictly” greater-than or less-than; these operators are merely supported
as aliases to >= and <=.

*
I think that making > and < aliases of >= and <= is a terrible idea!

First of all, it is very misleading. Second, what will happen to old code
when > and < are really supported? (*Some* day they will be supported!)
