IF() should be replaced by CASE WHEN
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.1) Gecko/20040721 Debian/1.7.1-2 Build Identifier: As IF(cond, exp1, exp2) function is MySQL specific, we should replace it with CASE WHEN cond THEN exp1 ELSE exp2 END, which is supported by all major databases (see bug 182136). The patch will follow Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Since when does MySQL support it?
"CASE was added in MySQL 3.23.3" (see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Control_flow_functions.html). I think we currently require 3.23.3 or higher, right?
yeah, just found that in the changelog myself before coming back here. How interesting. Yes, we currently require 3.23.41 or newer, so that shouldn't be a problem at all. (Although I do think IF() is easier to read, but compatibility rules...)
