Subject DBIx::Record set and SELECT f1.* FROM foo as f1, foo as f2...
Date Fri, 28 Nov 2003 04:03:30 GMT
Has anyone made that work?  I tried setting !Table or !TabJoin to 
"foo as f1, foo as f2" but all did not work well.  I finally patched 
DBIx::Database to handle table aliases, and that seems to work fine.

On a related subject, there is a value '*MainTable' which always 
seems to be the same as '*Table'.  I'm guessing that in joins it 
ought to be the first table, and then in places where -label behavior 
is being examined, it should use MainTable instead of Table.  But I'm 
just guessing.  Of course if that's the case, then it ought to be set 
by default to the first table in the !Table list, and it ought to be 
possible to override it.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
